Arch Intern Med 2000; 160:1683–1689. 2 COPD: Worldwide Prevalence A. A. Imprecise and variable definitions have made it hard to quantify the prevalence and burden of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in both developed and developing countries (1).

To derive this, methodology was developed to fill in the gaps where no data existed. In order to calculate YLD, the incidence, average age of onset, duration, and disability severity weight need to be known. This requires, therefore, that incidence and prevalence data be identified or estimated. Since valid population-based epidemiological studies do not exist for many nonfatal health outcomes in many regions, a methodology based on an iterative process was developed. The first step was to identify and convene disease experts from a number of international agencies and many countries.
