What’s the Answer? Open thread (Disease statistics)

BioStar is a site for asking, answering and discussing bioinformatics questions. We are members of the community and find it very useful. Often questions and answers arise at BioStar that are germane to our readers (end users of genomics resources). Every Thursday we will be highlighting one of those questions and answers here in this thread. You can ask questions in this thread, or you can always join in at BioStar.

Question of the week:

Database of disease statistics ?

What database do you use to access various details / statistics on common human diseases for various population ? 

I know about CDC websites (for example see the description on abdominal aortic aneurysm here) that provides various statistics with respect to US, but not sure if such data is available for other countries or populations.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
