Diabetes Facts & Figures

27 May 2015

The Institute for Public Health conducted the National Health and Morbidity Survey, NHMS, for the fourth time in 2011, which includes the latest data.

From 2011 onwards, the interval of the conduct of the NHMS will be reduced from a survey every decade to cycles of four-yearly surveys with annual data collection targeting different topics and target groups. The first year of each cycle will focus on similar areas that have been monitored on, since 1986, to provide trends on prevalence of certain diseases and health behaviour.
