Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2006-02-15


The percentage of residents aged 20 or older diagnosed with renal failure (ICD-9-CM code 584, 585, or 586) in a physician visit or hospitalization in a five year period. Renal failure is often a complication of diabetes, but can have other causes as well. It is expressed as a percentage because each resident is defined either as having been treated for renal failure, or not, in that period. Values are adjusted to reflect the population of Manitoba age 20+ (males and females combined).
