  The information provided here were analytical results of data collected from 808 adults who were interviewed by some doctors and nurses from their working places according to their convenience. Among the investigated adults 27.7 percent were exclusively suffering from diabetes which is one of the component of non-communicable diseases. An earlier study provided the information that 36.3 percent urban adults were suffering from this disease. In this study, 84.2 percent adults were urban residents and 25 percent of them were suffering exclusively from diabetes. But, urban and rural adults were at similar risk of prevalence of diabetes. The important reasons for the sufferings from diabetes were family income and marital status followed by expenditure, age and occupation. These variables were detected by factor analysis as factor loadings of these variables were higher.
