Comments

The national table reports data from the MEPS Preventive Care section. See the MEPS entry in the Data Source section of this appendix for more information.

Percents in the State table are age-adjusted to the 2000 standard population. High-risk conditions include diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, kidney disease, liver disease and cancer. Here high-risk is defined as adults having diabetes and therefore definition for the State table differs slightly from the Healthy People 2010 definition for 14-29c in that it focuses exclusively on non-institutionalized adults with diabetes.

Percent of adults with diagnosed diabetes with HbA1c level greater than 9.0% (poor control) and less than <7.0% (optimal). Percent of adults with diabetes who had a foot examination in the past year.
