Details

Healthcare professionals can use the estimates to understand:

  • the estimated total number of people in their area with diabetes (diagnosed and undiagnosed)
  • the estimated proportion of people in their area that have been diagnosed with diabetes

This can help with planning services that address rising levels of diabetes and tracking progress towards closing the gap between diagnoses and the total number of cases.

The estimates take into account the age, sex, and ethnic group distribution, and deprivation of the area. The diabetes prevalence model does not make a distinction between the types of diabetes.

The estimates use data from the Health Survey for England (2012, 2013 and 2014), which looks at the changes in health and lifestyles across the country. Population data are from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) and GP registered populations.

The documents that accompany the estimates include:

  • estimates by CCG tool for the impact of obesity on diabetes
  • summary analysis of estimates of diabetes prevalence across England
  • technical document explaining how the estimates are created
