Age-Adjusted Incidence of Diagnosed Diabetes per 1,000 Population Aged 18–79 Years, by Sex, United States, 1980–2011
For both men and women, the age-adjusted incidence of diagnosed diabetes was over 2 times higher in 2011 than in 1980, with most of the increase occurring in the early 1990's to 2008. From 2008 to 2011, the age-adjusted incidence of diagnosed diabetes showed a slight decrease. However, more years of data are needed to determine if the decrease is significant. In 2011, the age-adjusted incidence among men and women was similar (7.7 vs. 7.5 per 1,000).
