Supplementary notes

* Type 1 diabetes was defined as self-report of type 1 diabetes and current insulin use. Respondents who self-reported other diabetes typed were classified as having “Other Type” diabetes. All remaining cases were classified as type 2 diabetes.

Overall crude prevalence of diagnosed diabetes = 9.44% (95% CI = 9.01–9.88).

Prevalence rate is the proportion of affected people in a population (in this case, with diabetes) at a specific point in time.
