The National Diabetes Data Working Group’s Diabetes Indicators Review Subcommittee, under the direction of the National Diabetes Strategies Group (NDSG), has developed a national set of 33 diabetes indicators that address the NDSG’s six priorities for diabetes information:

  1. Are we preventing or delaying the development of Type 2 diabetes?
  2. Is case detection occurring optimally?
  3. Is access equitable?
  4. Is care (prevention, early detection and management) provided according to guidelines?
  5. Are we improving the quality of clinical management for people with diabetes?
  6. Are we reducing the death rate and serious health effects of diabetes?
