This dataset is a summary list of the 128 burden of disease and health issue-based datasets available from the 2000-2012 research funding data.  It includes summary details of each of the worksheets within each dataset and details of the currency of each dataset and worksheet. It is suggested as a quick reference point for those seeking time series funding information for particular diseases or health issues. Sheet one of the Summary details the annual expenditure across the period 2003-2012 for each dataset and for each worksheet within each dataset.Sheet Two of the Summary provides details of the currency of the data and the date it was prepared. It indicates the date that the dataset or worksheet was originated and the latest date that it was updated.
