Complete Health Indicator Report of Deaths due to Diabetes

Definition

Deaths with diabetes as the underlying cause of death. ICD-10 codes: E10-E14

Numerator

Number of deaths due to diabetes

Denominator

Total number of persons in the population

Why Is This Important?

Diabetes was the eighth leading cause of death among U.S. and New Jersey residents in 2020.

Other Objectives

'''Revised Healthy New Jersey 2020 Objective DM-1''': Reduce the age-adjusted mortality rate due to diabetes per 100,000 standard population to 15.8 for the total population, 13.9 among Whites, 32.0 among Blacks, 16.9 among Hispanics, and 12.0 among Asians. '''Original Healthy New Jersey 2020 Objective DM-1''': Reduce the age-adjusted mortality rate due to diabetes per 100,000 standard population to 15.8 for the total population, 16.0 among Whites, 38.5 among Blacks, 24.5 among Hispanics, and 12.0 among Asians.

How Are We Doing?

The age-adjusted death rate due to diabetes had been steadily declining for many years before increasing in 2020. In recent years, about 1,900 NJ resident deaths each year were due to diabetes. In 2020, there were over 2,400 such deaths. It is conceivable that the COVID-19 pandemic caused an increase in other causes of death due to delays in medical care and fears of going to the hospital and being exposed to COVID. In the total population and among each racial/ethnic group, males have a higher death rate than females. The rate among Blacks in 2020 was 2.7 times the rate among Whites. County rates ranged from a low of 10.4 deaths per 100,000 residents (age-adjusted) in Hunterdon to a high of 28.8 in Cumberland in 2020. Prior to 2020, the Healthy New Jersey 2020 original targets had been achieved by Whites, Blacks, and Hispanics and the revised targets had been met by Blacks and Hispanics as well.

How Do We Compare With the U.S.?

In 2020, the age-adjusted death rate due to diabetes among New Jersey residents was 15% below that of the nation as a whole. Prior to 2012, it was at or above the national rate.
