Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Disease
  • Internal medicine
  • Statistics

Theo Vos mainly investigates Global health, Demography, Years of potential life lost, Gerontology and Environmental health. His Global health research includes themes of Epidemiology, Incidence, Psychiatry, Cause of death and Disease burden. When carried out as part of a general Demography research project, his work on Mortality rate is frequently linked to work in Quality-adjusted life year and Injury prevention, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

His research investigates the connection with Years of potential life lost and areas like Disability-adjusted life year which intersect with concerns in Non-communicable disease. The various areas that he examines in his Gerontology study include Outcomes research and Burden of disease, Communicable disease, Public health, Population health. His work carried out in the field of Environmental health brings together such families of science as Population growth, Risk assessment and Risk factor.

His most cited work include:

  • Global and regional mortality from 235 causes of death for 20 age groups in 1990 and 2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (8830 citations)
  • A comparative risk assessment of burden of disease and injury attributable to 67 risk factors and risk factor clusters in 21 regions, 1990-2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (7776 citations)
  • 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)

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

Theo Vos mostly deals with Demography, Environmental health, Global health, Gerontology and Epidemiology. His Demography study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Life expectancy, Years of potential life lost, Incidence and Cause of death. The concepts of his Environmental health study are interwoven with issues in Burden of disease, Disease, Disease burden and Public health.

His study in Disease burden is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Risk assessment and Risk factor. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Psychological intervention, Mental health and Psychiatry. His Global health research incorporates themes from Developing country and Pediatrics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Demography (32.63%)
  • Environmental health (30.83%)
  • Global health (25.94%)

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

  • Demography (32.63%)
  • Global health (25.94%)
  • Environmental health (30.83%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Demography, Global health, Environmental health, Years of potential life lost and Mortality rate. He combines subjects such as Epidemiology, Incidence, Life expectancy and Burden of disease, Disease with his study of Demography. As a part of the same scientific study, Theo Vos usually deals with the Global health, concentrating on Disease burden and frequently concerns with Population health.

His research integrates issues of Population ageing, Public health, Health policy and Risk factor in his study of Environmental health. Theo Vos brings together Years of potential life lost and Injury prevention to produce work in his papers. His Mortality rate research integrates issues from Psychological intervention, Fertility, Young adult, Cause of death and Child mortality.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • 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)
  • Global, regional, and national age-sex-specific mortality for 282 causes of death in 195 countries and territories, 1980-2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (1735 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national comparative risk assessment of 84 behavioural, environmental and occupational, and metabolic risks or clusters of risks for 195 countries and territories, 1990–2017 : a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (1257 citations)
