Computation description:Help on this term

The National Health Survey (NHS) is a series of Australia-wide health surveys conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics designed to collect a range of information about the health of Australians, including the prevalence of self-reported type 2 diabetes.

In the NHS, data on diabetes refers to persons who reported having been told by a doctor or nurse that they had diabetes, irrespective of whether the person considered their diabetes to be current or long-term.

Excludes women with gestational diabetes.

The data are reported for people aged 18 and over.

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 the person (based on data availability).

Presented as a percentage.

95% confidence intervals and relative standard errors calculated for rates.
