*The number of deaths (and hence YLL) directly coded to a number of diseases, especially neuropsychiatric and musculoskeletal diseases, is zero or very small. For other diseases, mortality or disease burden may be zero in some region-age-sex groups. In such cases, the population attributable fractions would be undefined or unstable and have not been calculated.
