Text Description

The figure shows a series of five maps of the United States. These maps illustrate what States are above, below, and at the national average for different clinical processes for the noninstitutionalized population with diabetes. States are shown by color as having below average, near national average, above average or no data. The five maps are listed as follows:

  1. Percent of adults age 18 and over with diabetes who had a hemoglobin A1c measurement at least once in past year, by State, age adjusted, 2001.
  2. Percent of adults age 18 and over with diabetes who had a hemoglobin A1c measurement at least twice in past year, by State, age adjusted, 2001
  3. Percent of adults age 18 and over with diabetes who had a retinal eye examination in past year, by State, age adjusted, 2001
  4. Percent of adults age 18 and over with diabetes who had a foot examination in past year, by State, age adjusted, 2001
  5. Percent of noninstitutionalized high-risk adults (age 18-64) with diabetes who had an influenza immunization in past year, by State, age adjusted, 2001

Table 2.1 provides the data in tabular form.
