Methodology Notes

Persons are considered to have diagnosed diabetes if they respond ‘yes’ to ever being told by a doctor or health professional that they have diabetes or sugar diabetes. Those who respond borderline are counted as ‘no’. Women who report that the only time they have been diagnosed with diabetes was during pregnancy (gestational diabetes) are also excluded.
