Distribution of Diabetes Duration Among Adults Aged 18–79 Years, United States, 1997–2011

This figure shows duration of diabetes among adults aged 18–79 years: maximum and minimum (top and bottom of the red vertical line), 75th and 25th percentiles (top and bottom ends of the box), and mean (average; the plus sign) and median (50th percentile; the red line in the blue box). In each year from 1997 to 2011, the mean duration of diabetes was higher than the median. From 1997 to 2011, the mean duration increased from 10.8 to 11.4 years, but the median duration did not show a consistent trend during this period, decreasing from 7.1 to 6.3 between 1997 and 2004 and increasing from 6.3 to 7.6 between 2004 and 2011.
