    Objectives

    The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of diabetes mellitus in Hawaii from insurance claims data.

    Methods

    Information from two major health plans covering approximately 66% of the state's population was used to estimate prevalence rates by sex, age group, and geographic area.

    Weighted multiple linear regression was applied to identity predic-tors of diabetes prevalence.

    Results

    The statewide diabetes prevalence was estimated at 43.8 per 1000 persons.

    The ethnic composition of the population and rural residence partially explained the geo-graphic variation in diabetes prevalence.

    Conclusions

    Insurance claims data may be a useful tool for population-based diabetes surveil-lance.
