Disability adjusted life years (dalys), Advanced Statistics

This is an attempt to measure the suffering caused by the illness which takes into the account both the years of the potential life lost due to the premature mortality as well as the years lost due the disease or health condition. One DALY presents the equivalent of the loss of one year of full health. Useful in the comparisons across diseases and in setting the national and international health priorities.
