Global mortality rates and causes, visually

There have been a lot of news reports about the Global Burden of Disease Study published yesterday in The Lancet. The Guardian's data blog has an interactive graphic showing cause of death visually. Here is a screenshot showing the 2010 causes (by percentage) of death among women by age group.

And a screenshot of the same data by region:

You can compare 1990 to 2010, look at rates for men, women or both, look at rate, number or percentage. And to there are tables comparing 1990 with 2010. Fascinating, and very well done.
