Abstract

The objective of this study is to investigate the association between socioeconomic status and diabetes prevalence. A population-based cross-sectional survey was conducted in Japan. The association between household income tertile, duration of education (<12, 12, >12 years), or occupation (blue collar, white collar) and diabetes prevalence were assessed in 6,197 participants using multivariable-adjusted logistic regression models. Blue collar occupation and middle household income were found to be associated with high prevalence of diabetes mellitus.
