This paper presents a method for adjusting for dependent comorbidity using available empirical data.

Colin D Mathers et al.

Population Health Metrics 4 (7), 18 Apr 2006

The paper first presents a theoretical approach to adjusting for dependent comorbidity, then an operationalization of this approach using analysis of available empirical data, and finally presents sensitivity analyses for certain assumptions required by the method.

Adjusting for dependent comorbidity For the second round of HALE estimates published in the World Health Reports 2001 [ 15 ], dependent comorbidity was explicitly taken into account for Vitamin A deficiency and iron-deficiency anaemia (50% and 25% respectively assumed to be comorbid with protein-energy malnutrition), for diabetes with cardiovascular disease, and for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease with cardiovascular disease (comorbidity estimated from smoking prevalence data as common cause) [ 12 ].

The approach outlined above for adjusting the sum of PYLD for independent comorbidity can be generalized to allow for dependent comorbidity.

Colin D Mathers et al.

Population Health Metrics 4 (7), 18 Apr 2006

The f factors from the survey analyses were compared and averaged to give a final set of dependent comorbidity factors used for adjusting the summation of PYLD across causes for each country.
