Abstract

The Iowa Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), a household interview survey of adults that began to include a core question covering diagnosed diabetes prevalence in 1988, is the primary source of data in this Iowa Chronic Disease Report supplemental update on diabetes. Most rates in this supplement are age-adjusted, rather than crude rates. Age-adjusting eliminates differences in rates that are attributable to populations being compared having difference age distributions.
