Both crude and age-adjusted hospital discharge rates for major cardiovascular disease as first-listed diagnosis per 1,000 diabetic population remained unchanged from 1988 to 1996, and then declined. Throughout the period, the overall trends of the crude and age-adjusted rates were similar, indicating that the aging of the population had little effect on trends. In 2006, the crude rate was 81.1 per 1,000 diabetic population and age-adjusted was 43.7 per 1,000 diabetic population.
