The Current GDD Data Request Process
We've spent years identifying, accessing, and compiling individual-level dietary survey data from around the world. Thanks to this continued effort, we've accumulated 1,395 survey years of dietary data and 145 surveys with biomarker data. These surveys now cover 185 countries and 97% of the world's population. But there's still more work to be done; we've identified an additional 245 surveys, 82 of which we've marked as "high priority." GDD team members will continue to check these surveys and prepare them to be included in our updated model. We expect our updated estimates, informed by these surveys, to be available by 2019.
