  1. Fulltext. Using disability-adjusted life years to assess the economic impact of dengue in Puerto Rico : 1984-1994.

    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    This study presents the disability-adjusted life years (DALYs), a non-monetary economic measure of impact, lost to dengue in Puerto Rico for the period 1984-1994.

    Data on the number of reported cases, cases with hemorrhagic manifestations, hospitalizations, and deaths were obtained from a surveillance system maintained at the Dengue Branch, Division of Vector-Borne Infectious Diseases, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (San Juan, PR).

    The reported cases were divided into two age groups (0-15 years old and>15 years old), and then multiplied by predetermined factors (10 for 0-15 years ; 27 for>15 years) to allow for age-related under-reporting of cases.

    Severity of dengue was modeled by classifying cases into three groups : dengue fever, dengue with severe manifestations, and hospitalized cases.

    Each group was assigned a different number of days lost because of dengue-related disability.

    Dengue caused an average of 658 DALYs per year per million population (SE=114, range=145-1,519).

    A multivariate sensitivity analysis, which simultaneously altered the values of six input variables, produced a mean of 580 DALYs/year/million population, with a maximum average of 1,021 DALYs/year/million population, and a maximum, single-year estimate for 1994 of 2,153 DALYs/million population.

    The most important input was the number of days lost to classic dengue. (...)
