This study was designed to investigate the large differences in diabetes mortality rates in Europe.
In each of the participating countries (France, Germany, The Netherlands, Northern Ireland-UK, Republic of Ireland, Romania, Scotland-UK, Switzerland) a random sample of certifying physicians was asked to certify the causes of death of six case histories which described the deaths of diabetic patients; the responses from an average of 220 physicians per country were analysed.
These registered causes were then coded nationally and the underlying cause was compared with that following a central recoding.
