Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Surgery
  • Cancer

His scientific interests lie mostly in Global health, Demography, Years of potential life lost, Life expectancy and Mortality rate. Benn Sartorius combines subjects such as Gerontology, Environmental health, Cause of death, Pediatrics and Disease burden with his study of Global health. His Disease burden study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Population ageing and Cohort.

Benn Sartorius has researched Demography in several fields, including Young adult and Public health. The concepts of his Years of potential life lost study are interwoven with issues in Verbal autopsy, Cancer, Epidemiology, Epidemiological transition and Disability-adjusted life year. His work carried out in the field of Mortality rate brings together such families of science as Compensation law of mortality and Child mortality.

His most cited work include:

  • Global, regional, and national life expectancy, all-cause mortality, and cause-specific mortality for 249 causes of death, 1980–2015: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015 (3027 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 310 diseases and injuries, 1990–2015: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015 (2980 citations)
  • Global, Regional, and National Cancer Incidence, Mortality, Years of Life Lost, Years Lived With Disability, and Disability-Adjusted Life-Years for 29 Cancer Groups, 1990 to 2016: A Systematic Analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study. (2660 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Benn Sartorius spends much of his time researching Demography, Environmental health, Mortality rate, Global health and Public health. His studies deal with areas such as Epidemiology, Incidence, Young adult, Child mortality and Infant mortality as well as Demography. In his study, Relative risk is strongly linked to Risk factor, which falls under the umbrella field of Environmental health.

His Mortality rate study deals with Years of potential life lost intersecting with Disability-adjusted life year. The Global health study which covers Life expectancy that intersects with Epidemiological transition. His Public health research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Psychological intervention and Health care.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Demography (40.38%)
  • Environmental health (32.05%)
  • Mortality rate (29.17%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Environmental health (32.05%)
  • Demography (40.38%)
  • Public health (25.96%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Benn Sartorius mostly deals with Environmental health, Demography, Public health, Psychological intervention and Mortality rate. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Developing country, Sanitation, Hygiene and Risk factor. His Demography study incorporates themes from Epidemiology, Life expectancy, Global health, Disease burden and Random effects model.

His Global health study is concerned with Health care in general. His Mortality rate research integrates issues from Viral hepatitis, Hepatitis B and Years of potential life lost. His study on Years of potential life lost also encompasses disciplines like

  • Disease which is related to area like Population growth,
  • Cause of death which is related to area like Disability-adjusted life year, COPD and Burden of disease.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global burden of 369 diseases and injuries in 204 countries and territories, 1990–2019: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 (224 citations)
  • Global burden of 369 diseases and injuries in 204 countries and territories, 1990–2019: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 (224 citations)
  • Global burden of 369 diseases and injuries in 204 countries and territories, 1990–2019: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 (224 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Surgery
  • Cancer

His primary areas of investigation include Years of potential life lost, Mortality rate, Risk factor, Demography and Environmental health. Benn Sartorius works mostly in the field of Years of potential life lost, limiting it down to concerns involving Disease and, occasionally, Global health, Capstone and Birth rate. His Global health study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Actuarial science and Burden of disease.

His research in Risk factor focuses on subjects like Verbal autopsy, which are connected to Psychological intervention, Incidence, Nutrition transition, Case fatality rate and Developing country. Benn Sartorius studied Demography and Life expectancy that intersect with Population health, Disease burden, Demographic analysis and Demographic change. His work deals with themes such as Disability-adjusted life year, Relative risk, COPD and Cause of death, which intersect with Environmental health.
