Query Results for New Jersey Behavioral Risk Factor Survey Data - Diabetes - Crude Rate

Percentage with diabetes Filter: Diabetes
Year Filter: 2017
Data Grouped By:County of Residence

Weighted Estimates
The estimated percentages reported above have been produced by weighting the sample so that the results better represent the New Jersey population and to adjust for the probability of selection. The sample sizes reported in the table are unweighted. Estimates calculated using the unweighted sample sizes will not be accurate.

Denominator
Unless otherwise indicated, the denominator used for the calculation of these estimates includes all survey respondents except those with missing, don't know, and refused answers. (If the query was limited to a particular sub-population-group, only those respondents are included in the denominator.)

Question Wording
Has a doctor, nurse, or other health professional EVER told you that you have diabetes?
* Since 2004: Pre-diabetes and borderline diabetes categorized separately.

Related Health Indicators and Objectives

Healthy New Jersey/Healthy People Objective(s):
Reduce the overall rate of diabetes that is clinically diagnosed (HP 2010 Obj. 5-3)

Other Health Indicators and Objectives:
Diabetes prevalence among adults aged >= 18 years (CDC/CSTE Chronic Disease Indicator)

Survey Sample
The New Jersey Behavioral Risk Factor Survey is a survey of non-institutionalized New Jersey adults aged 18 and over conducted using scientific telephone survey methods. Excluded are adults living in group quarters such as college dormitories, nursing homes, military barracks, and prisons. (Individuals who cannot conduct the interview in English or Spanish have also been excluded from the survey since it began in 1991, and cell phone interviewing did not begin until 2011.)

Statistical Reliability
The 95% confidence interval (CI), which provides a measure of reliability (precision) for statistical estimates. It is calculated here using an "exact" method which leads to asymmetric intervals except in special cases. An approximation to this interval could also be constructed by adding and subtracting the margin of error (MOE) for the estimate to/from the estimate itself, where the MOE is calculated as the standard error of the estimate multiplied by 1.96. (A MOE of 3 percentage points or less is commonly used as a standard of reliability for opinion surveys, although the reliability of a measure should ideally be assessed in conjunction with the specific use to which it will be put.)

The relative standard error (RSE) also provides a measure of reliability for statistical estimates. The RSE is computed by dividing the standard error of the estimate by the estimate itself (or its complement, if the estimate itself is a proportion greater than 0.5) and multiplying by 100 to convert it to a percentage. (Estimates with a RSE above 25%-30% are commonly flagged as "unreliable" for government surveys, although the reliability of a measure should ideally be assessed in conjunction with the specific use to which it will be put.)
