Abstract

 In the past decade, high attention has been given to the Disability-Adjusted Live Year (DALY) metric. One DALY is one lost year of “healthy” life. DALYs for a disease or a health condition are measured by the sum of (a) the Years of Life Lost (YLL) because of premature death occurred in the target population and (b) the Years Lost due to Disability (YLD) for those living with that condition or its consequences. YLL corresponds to the number of deaths multiply by the standard life expectancy at the age and gender at which death occurs. YLD is estimated by multiplying the number of incidents by the average duration of the disease to a weight factor that reflects the severity of the disease (disability weight or DW). DW is reported on a scale from 0 (perfect health) to 1 (dead). The DWs could be measured by several utility measurement techniques.
