The Australian Burden of Disease Database contains aggregated output of burden of disease metrics from the Australian Burden of Disease Study. This includes Years of life lost (YLL), Years lived with disability (YLD) and Disability-adjusted life years (DALY) for around 200 diseases and injuries. It also includes estimates of attributable burden (DALY) for around 30 risk factors.

Subnational estimates of disease burden are available for state/territory, remoteness and socioeconomic group for 2011 and 2015. Subnational estimates of risk factor attribution are available for socioeconomic group for 2015.
Indigenous-specific estimates of disease burden and risk factor attribution are available for 2003 and 2011.
