This includes areas of health state measurement and valuation, summary measures of levels of population health, and inequality in population health, descriptive epidemiology at the population level, burden of disease and injury analysis, disease, and risk factor modeling for populations and comparative assessment of risks to health at population level. The journal provides a platform for population health researchers in all these areas to share their findings with the global research community.
