YLLs = years of life lost, YLDs = years lived with disability, DALYs = disability-adjusted life years, PAFs = population attributable fractions (expressed as percentages)

Data on educational levels are collected from the Swedish population in 2008 using the longitudinal integration database for health insurance and labor market studies (LISA)[19]. Data on diabetes are collected from GBD Study 2002 [20].
