The preceding chapters described the outputs and processes of the Victorian burden of disease study to provide an indication of the information offered by such a study and the time and resources required to produce those results. This chapter discusses the validity of the DALY methodology, applicability of the methods to the New South Wales situation, alternative methods that could be employed and the resources required to conduct a New South Wales burden of disease and injury study.
