The Australian Diabetes Map is the only national map monitoring the spread of diabetes in Australia.
The Map uses groundbreaking information technology to present population data about Australians diagnosed with diabetes. It shows the numbers of people diagnosed with diabetes in all parts of Australia with information on age, gender and type of diabetes.
The Australian Diabetes Map is a dynamic reference tool for the whole community, our healthcare professionals, policy makers and researchers to help bring a better understanding of diabetes.
The data contained in the Australian Diabetes Map is derived from the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) Registrant database from September 2011 and shows people diagnosed with diabetes who are registered on the Scheme. The NDSS is an initiative of the Australian Government administered by Diabetes Australia.
The information contained in the Australian Diabetes Map has recently been updated as there have been some changes in the way in which the information has been extracted from the NDSS database. This has caused a change in previous numbers shown on the site, including the number of people with diabetes and are registered with NDSS. The Map now includes 2006 Census data reflecting prevalence rates at a national, federal, state electorates and local government level.
