The following data visualization was developed in Microsoft Power BI. It allows you to explore cancer rates by cancer type, sex, and US state from various metric perspectives: prevalence, death, DALYs (Disability-adjusted life years), and YLLs (Years of life lost). The data is compiled by IHME (Institute for Health Metrics & Evaluation) and can be downloaded from their GHDx results tool. The rates are age-standardized and per 100,000 population.
Definition of Terms:
Prevalence – The total number of cases of a given disease in a specified population at a designated time.
DALYs – The sum of years lost due to premature death (YLLs) and years lived with disability (YLDs). DALYs are also defined as years of healthy life lost.
YLLs – Years of life lost due to premature mortality.
