There may be some discrepancies between estimates in the IDF Diabetes Atlas and other reported national estimates. This may be due to a difference in sampling methods or populations. The IDF Diabetes Atlas 2015 uses age-stratified data and a consistent methodology to estimate the diabetes prevalence in adults aged 20-79 years, across 220 countries and territories. As a result, other national estimates may report a higher number of diabetes cases.
