Diabetes Prevalence Rates Among Adults Across California Legislative Districts

February 1, 2005

Policy Brief

Authors: Mona Jhawar, Carolyn A. Mendez-Luck, Ph.D., M.P.H., Hongjian Yu, PhD, Ying-Ying Meng, DrPH, Steven P. Wallace, PhD

This new policy brief from the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research presents diabetes prevalence rates among adults by California Assembly and Senate districts. These data are relevant to policymakers and advocates concerned with the impact of chronic conditions on the health of Californians. Estimating the prevalence of diabetes at the local level is increasingly important as rates continue to climb and the state's population continues to age and become more ethnically diverse. Diabetes prevalence rates were estimated using a small-area methodology with data from the 2001 California Health Interview Survey (CHIS 2001), 2000-2002 Current Population Surveys (CPS) and 2000 Census.
