Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Disease
  • Ecology
  • Statistics

Simon I. Hay focuses on Global health, Demography, Malaria, Environmental health and Years of potential life lost. His work deals with themes such as Mortality rate, Cause of death, Disease burden and Gerontology, which intersect with Global health. The concepts of his Demography study are interwoven with issues in Epidemiology, Incidence, Life expectancy, Millennium Development Goals and Burden of disease.

His Malaria study incorporates themes from Cartography, Ecology and Vector. Simon I. Hay has researched Environmental health in several fields, including Attributable risk, Disease, Developing country, Risk assessment and Risk factor. His Years of potential life lost research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Disability-adjusted life year, Cancer, Breast cancer and Population health.

His most cited work include:

  • Global, regional, and national prevalence of overweight and obesity in children and adults during 1980–2013: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (6893 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 301 acute and chronic diseases and injuries in 188 countries, 1990-2013: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (6156 citations)
  • The global distribution and burden of dengue (4895 citations)

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

His main research concerns Malaria, Environmental health, Global health, Demography and Public health. Simon I. Hay focuses mostly in the field of Malaria, narrowing it down to matters related to Ecology and, in some cases, Vector and Cartography. His Environmental health study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Psychological intervention, Disease, Disease burden, Risk assessment and Risk factor.

As part of his studies on Global health, Simon I. Hay often connects relevant areas like Pediatrics. His Demography research incorporates themes from Epidemiology, Years of potential life lost, Incidence and Cause of death. His Public health study incorporates themes from Outbreak and Socioeconomics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Malaria (48.81%)
  • Environmental health (42.55%)
  • Global health (30.91%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Environmental health (42.55%)
  • Demography (28.66%)
  • Global health (30.91%)

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

Simon I. Hay mainly investigates Environmental health, Demography, Global health, Incidence and Years of potential life lost. His work carried out in the field of Environmental health brings together such families of science as Psychological intervention, Malnutrition, Public health and Risk factor. His work on Mortality rate as part of general Demography research is often related to Injury prevention, thus linking different fields of science.

He works mostly in the field of Global health, limiting it down to topics relating to Disease burden and, in certain cases, Population ageing. His Incidence study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Verbal autopsy, Disease and Malaria. As part of the same scientific family, Simon I. Hay usually focuses on Years of potential life lost, concentrating on Cause of death and intersecting with Attributable risk.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)

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

  • Disease
  • Ecology
  • Statistics

Simon I. Hay focuses on Global health, Demography, Environmental health, Years of potential life lost and Mortality rate. Simon I. Hay interconnects Incidence, Cross-sectional study, Index, Per capita and Disease burden in the investigation of issues within Global health. His study in Incidence is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Verbal autopsy, Plasmodium falciparum, Malaria, Plasmodium vivax and Pandemic.

His Demography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Fertility, Birth rate, Total fertility rate, Life expectancy and Burden of disease. His Environmental health research includes themes of Psychological intervention, Wasting, Public health and Risk factor. The Years of potential life lost study combines topics in areas such as Cancer, Breast cancer, Hepatitis B, Epidemiology and Disease.
