Some demographic sections have been suppressed: Rows contained less than 50 respondents.

*This question was asked of respondents who reported having been told by a doctor that they had diabetes. Respondents who reported having no feet were excluded from this table.

#Use caution in interpreting cell sizes less than 50 and confidence intervals with width greater than 20. N = Cell Size, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics.
