Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome

Olalekan A. Uthman mostly deals with Global health, Demography, Life expectancy, Mortality rate and Years of potential life lost. The various areas that Olalekan A. Uthman examines in his Global health study include Epidemiology, Incidence, Disease burden and Environmental health. His research integrates issues of Young adult, Developing country, Mental health, Depression and Birth rate in his study of Demography.

He interconnects Child mortality, Communicable disease, Gerontology and Epidemiological transition in the investigation of issues within Life expectancy. His Mortality rate research incorporates themes from Fertility, Compensation law of mortality and Cause of death. His Cause of death course of study focuses on Pediatrics and Case fatality rate.

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 incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 354 diseases and injuries for 195 countries and territories, 1990-2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (2508 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Environmental health, Demography, Public health, Meta-analysis and Global health. His work deals with themes such as Cross-sectional study, Health care, Psychological intervention and Malnutrition, which intersect with Environmental health. His research in Demography intersects with topics in Socioeconomic status, Epidemiology, Pediatrics and Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.

His Public health research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Developing country and Gerontology. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Meta-analysis, focusing on Confidence interval and, on occasion, Odds ratio and Diabetes mellitus. Olalekan A. Uthman works mostly in the field of Global health, limiting it down to topics relating to Life expectancy and, in certain cases, Epidemiological transition.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental health (40.48%)
  • Demography (33.63%)
  • Public health (37.20%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Environmental health (40.48%)
  • Global health (16.96%)
  • Demography (33.63%)

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

Environmental health, Global health, Demography, Public health and Psychological intervention are his primary areas of study. His Environmental health research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Rural area, Health care and Low birth weight. His Global health study combines topics in areas such as Life expectancy, Mortality rate, Disability-adjusted life year and Epidemiological transition.

His Life expectancy research includes themes of Incidence and Cause of death. His Demography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Socioeconomic status, Years of potential life lost and Odds. The study incorporates disciplines such as Developing country and Malaria in addition to Public health.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Health effects of dietary risks in 195 countries, 1990–2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (904 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national burden of stroke, 1990-2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (564 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 2017 (347 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome

Olalekan A. Uthman mostly deals with Global health, Environmental health, Demography, Years of potential life lost and Public health. His study in Global health is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Mortality rate and Incidence. The various areas that Olalekan A. Uthman examines in his Environmental health study include Logistic regression, Health facility, Health services and Reproductive medicine.

His Demography research integrates issues from Body mass index, Odds ratio, Diabetes mellitus, Confidence interval and Prediabetes. His Years of potential life lost study improves the overall literature in Life expectancy. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Disability-adjusted life year, Adolescent health, Cause of death and Epidemiological transition.
