Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2014-05-21


This is the age- and sex-adjusted mortality rate (given as a percentage, i.e., deaths per 100) for residents aged 19 and older with diabetes.

A cohort diagnosed or treated for diabetes was identified using three fiscal years of data (1999/00-2001/02)- see the Diabetes - Measuring Prevalence concept for the ICD coding used for this calculation. The all-cause mortality rate of this cohort was then calculated in the subsequent five-year period: 2002/03-2006/07. The diabetes cohort included Manitoba residents aged 19 and older as of April 1, 2002 who had at least three years of coverage prior to April 1, 2002 and were registered with Manitoba Health as recipients of universal healthcare coverage up to and including March 31, 2007 or up to the time of death.
