Crude and Age-Adjusted Hospital Discharge Rates for Diabetes as First-Listed Diagnosis per 1,000 Diabetic Population, United States, 1988–2009
Both the crude and age-adjusted hospital discharge rates for diabetes as first listed diagnosis per 1,000 diabetic population decreased from 1988 to 2009. Trends in the crude and age-adjusted hospital discharge rates were similar suggesting that the aging of the population had little or no effect on trends during this time period. In 2009, the crude hospital discharge rate was 33.3 per 1,000 diabetic population and the age adjusted rate was 46.7 per 1,000 diabetic population.
