Abstract

Multilevel analysis revealed the odds of having diabetes varied geographically by 42% among 114,755 persons. Approximately 9% of this variation was attributable to behavioural risk factors, 41% due to health status and obesity, 26% due to socioeconomic circumstances and 13% to country of birth. Contextual risk factors warrant future investigation.
