Diabetes Incidence among First Nations in Alberta

Diabetes Incidence and Relative Rates by age group, First Nations status, and sex, 2015

“Given a strong interest in diabetes information among First Nations communities in Alberta, this is the third in a series of First Nations – Health Trends Alberta dedicated to diabetes-related topics. In previous editions, we provided data on diabetes prevalence and lower-leg amputations among diabetics. Here, the age-specific incidence rates of diabetes in 2015 are presented by sex for First Nations and non-First Nations in Alberta separately. Incidence is the number of new cases of disease diagnosed in a population. We also provide age-specific relative rates that compare the difference in rates between First Nations and non-First Nations by age group and sex.”
