Crude and Age-Adjusted Percentage of Adults Aged 60 Years or Older With Diagnosed Diabetes Who Needed Assistance With Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL),* by Sex, United States, 1997–2011

The crude and age-adjusted percentage of men and women aged 60 years or older with diagnosed diabetes who reported needing assistance with Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL) showed little or no change from 1997 to 2011. Trends in the crude and age-adjusted percentages among men and among women were similar, suggesting that the aging of the population had little or no effect on trends during this time period. Throughout the period, both the crude and age-adjusted percentages of adults who reported needing assistance with IADL were higher among women than among men. In 2011, the age-adjusted percentage was 22.2% for women and 11.1% for men.
