Studies of diabetes prevalence are being published regularly, but do not always get included in time to contribute to the estimates presented in the Diabetes Atlas. Many newer studies, particularly in developing countries, show large increases from those previously conducted in the countries and the reported prevalence will often exceed the conservative estimate produced by the Atlas.

In particular, the Atlas favors large, nationally representative, population-based studies that are published in peer-reviewed literature. While we do consider other sources of data, these types of studies continue to provide the best evidence on the prevalence of diabetes.

Atlas scientific papers

The Atlas strives to provide the lastest scientific evidence of the global burden of diabetes. Scientific publications have always formed an important part of this effort. To further strengthen the evidence base and provide a more in-depth discussion of the methods and estimates presented in the Atlas, a series of papers adding to the existing manuscripts will be published in the journal Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice. The titles of upcoming papers are listed below.

Global Estimates

  • Global estimates of the prevalence of diabetes for 2013 and  projections for 2035 for the IDF Diabetes Atlas
  • Diabetes in the young – a global view and worldwide estimates of numbers of children with type 1 diabetes
  • Global estimates of undiagnosed diabetes in adults for 2013 for the IDF Diabetes Atlas
  • Global estimates of the prevalence of hyperglycaemia in pregnancy for 2013 for the IDF Diabetes Atlas
