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 is the seventh leading cause of death among U.S. and New Jersey residents. It is the fourth leading cause among Asians, fifth leading cause among Blacks and Hispanics, sixth among males, and eighth among Whites and females in New Jersey.

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?

In New Jersey, about 1,900 deaths each year are due to diabetes. The age-adjusted death rate has substantially declined in recent years and currently stands at 16.9. The rate among Blacks is much higher than that of other racial/ethnic groups but the gap is narrowing. The rate among males is higher than the rate among females for each racial/ethnic group. County rates per 100,000 population (age-adjusted) range from a low of 11 in Hunterdon to a high of 27 in Cumberland.

How Do We Compare With the U.S.?

The age-adjusted death rate due to diabetes among New Jersey residents is 21% below that of the nation as a whole. Prior to 2012, it was at or above the national rate.

What Is Being Done?

The New Jersey [http://www.nj.gov/health/fhs/chronic/diabetes/ Diabetes Prevention and Control Program] facilitates grant funding for Diabetes Resource Coordination Centers (DRCCs) to improve prevention and control of diabetes.
