This page includes data from Community Health Survey Reports of each county and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on prevalence of diabetes. The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) survey asks adults to report if they have ever been diagnosed with diabetes, a disease caused by the pancreas not creating enough insulin to take the sugar out of one’s bloodstream and convert it into energy. There are multiple types of diabetes: Type 1, Type 2 and Prediabetes. The BRFSS is administered by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services in conjunction with the CDC.
