    Figure 4: Projected Global Disability-Adjusted Life-Years by Systolic Blood Pressure Level and Country or Region, 2015

    Reported data include both sexes combined and individuals aged 25 years and older. Data are reported for the 3 most populous countries (United States, China, and India) to highlight burden at the highest population levels and utility of country-specific results. Data for other countries and regions are presented on a regional scale using super regions from the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors study 2015 (the regions that contain the United States, China, and India were excluded to prevent double representation of the following results: high income, South Asia, Southeast Asia, East Asia, and Oceania) and have presented the remainder of countries from those super regions as an additional group. The boxes show the median and extend from the 25th to the 75th percentiles. The upper whiskers extend from the third quartile to the highest value within 1.5 × the IQR of the third quartile; the lower whiskers extend from the first quartile to the lowest value within 1.5 × the IQR of the first quartile. Data outside the whisker range are plotted as open circles.aCategory includes 45 countries.
