From the 2008 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System:
[NUMERATOR:] Have you ever taken a course or class in how to manage your diabetes yourself?
Have you ever been told by a doctor that you have diabetes? (If "Yes" and respondent is female, ask "Was this only when you were pregnant?" If respondent says pre-diabetes or borderline diabetes, use response code 4.) Variable Name: DIABETE2
Persons are considered to have diabetes if they respond “yes” to the question “have you ever been told by a doctor that you have diabetes”. Women who report that the only time they have been diagnosed with diabetes was during pregnancy (gestational diabetes) are excluded. Persons who report that they have pre-diabetes or borderline diabetes are also excluded.
