South Australian Regional Diabetes Profiles
The South Australian Regional Diabetes profiles were originally conceived in 2000, offering a concise snap shot of diabetes in all of the seven rural regions of South Australia.
The profiles have now been developed utilising a generic format. This data is intended to inform decision makers and planners, as well as support strategic planning.
The profiles have been made available through the Population Research and Outcomes Studies (PROS) Unit. The Unit is located within the Health Intelligence Branch, Policy and Inter-Government Relations Division, Department of Health. Epidemiological information presented in the profiles has been obtained from the SERCIS Health Goals and Targets Health Priority Areas Survey.
SERCIS (Social Environment Risk Context Information System) is a population survey vehicle using telephone interview methodology. For the two Health Goals and Targets health Priority Areas Surveys, 50% of the sample were randomly selected from metropolitan Adelaide Electronic White Pages listings. The other 50% were selected from telephone numbers in the seven country health areas. Areas with small populations were over sampled to provide adequate power in the analyses. Both surveys are weighted by age, sex, and area composition to provide representative estimates for the South Australian population.
