Diabetes Report Card 2012: National and State Profile of Diabetes and Its Complications
Purpose of This Report
This report is required under the Catalyst to Better Diabetes Care Act of 2009, which is part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Section 10407 of Public Law 111-148, hereafter called the Affordable Care Act). The act states that the report card should be published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) every 2 years and include data about diabetes and prediabetes, preventive care practices, risk factors, quality of care, diabetes outcomes, and, to the extent possible, trend and state data.
The Diabetes Report Card 2012 uses 2010 data (the most recent data available) to present a profile of diabetes and its complications at the national and state level. It includes information about prediabetes awareness, diabetes outcomes, and risk factors. The estimates in this report were calculated by CDC staff and are available in more detail at CDC’s National Diabetes Surveillance System Web site at http://apps.nccd.cdc.gov/DDTSTRS/default.aspx.
