This is a non-experimental, cross-sectional, analytical, homodemic study (Feinstein, 1995).
The crossing scheme was designed so that each hybrid stock would have the same proportion of heterozygous (or "heterodemic") loci but would differ in the proportion and/or identity of homozygous (or "homodemic") loci from the Wacissa River and Trout Pond populations.
A study was carried out; its design was cross-sectional (measurement of all variables), bilective (gathering of data in files and interviews to diabetic persons), retrospective (the subjects assessed were asked to locate themselves temporarily in a unit of a month prior to evaluation); homodemic (population beneficiary of the Mexican Institute of Social Security [IMSS]); multicentric (sample was obtained in two family practice clinical centers); and analytical (for its scope in the analysis and explanation of the relation between variables).
