World Health Organization TB data
A subset of data from the World Health Organization Global Tuberculosis Report.
The data uses the original codes given by the World Health Organization. The column names for columns five through 60 are made by combining
new_ to a code for method of diagnosis (
rel = relapse,
sn = negative pulmonary smear,
sp = positive pulmonary smear,
ep = extrapulmonary) to a code for gender (
f = female,
m = male) to a code for age group (
014 = 0-14 yrs of age,
1524 = 15-24 years of age,
2534 = 25 to 34 years of age,
3544 = 35 to 44 years of age,
4554 = 45 to 54 years of age,
5564 = 55 to 64 years of age,
65 = 65 years of age or older).
A dataset with the variables
- Two letter International Organization for Standardization (ISO) country code
- Three letter International Organization for Standardization (ISO) country code
- new_sp_m014 - new_rel_f65
