Diabetes*

Diabetes Prevalence is the prevalence of diagnosed diabetes in a given county. Respondents were considered to have diagnosed diabetes if they responded "yes" to the question, "Has a doctor ever told you that you have diabetes?" Women who indicated that they only had diabetes during pregnancy were not considered to have diabetes.

Years of Data Used

2013

CDC Diabetes Interactive Atlas

The National Diabetes Surveillance System provides county-level estimates of obesity, physical inactivity, and diabetes using three years of data from CDC's Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) and data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Population Estimates Program. The county-level estimates are based on indirect model-dependent estimates. Bayesian multilevel modeling techniques are used to obtain estimates.
