Prevalence of diabetes among children aged 1 to 4, Canada, 2000/2001 to 2010/2011

Source: CICH graphic created using data adapted from the Public Health Agency of Canada, Canadian Chronic Disease Surveillance System 2000-2001 to 2010-2011, customized analyses from a subset of the data from Chronic Disease and Injury Indicator Framework, Data tool, edition 2014. – accessed June 24, 2017.

In 2010/11, the prevalence of diabetes among children aged 1 to 4 years was 0.1%.  This was unchanged from 2000/01.


Diabetes among young children is mainly type 1 diabetes – which has genetic risk factors along with environmental triggers.  Therefore, it is not surprising that there is not a significant variation from year to year.
