Collection and usage attributes
The National Health Measures Survey component of the 2011–12 Australian Health Survey included a fasting plasma glucose test and an HbA1c test. For this indicator, the fasting plasma glucose test is used in the determination of people with known diabetes and the HbA1c test is used in the determination of effective management of diabetes. Persons with known diabetes who have an HbA1c result of less than or equal to 7.0% are considered to be managing their diabetes effectively.
Known diabetes is defined as persons self-reporting that they had ever been told by a doctor or nurse that they have diabetes and:
Excludes persons who did not fast for 8 hours or more prior to their blood test.
Reported for persons aged between 18 and 69 years.
Excludes women with gestational diabetes.
Rates are directly age-standardised to the 2001 Australian population.
Analysis by remoteness and Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas (SEIFA) Index of Relative Socio-Economic Disadvantage (IRSD) is based on usual residence of person (subject to data availability).
Presented as a percentage.
95% confidence intervals and relative standard errors calculated for rates.
