Age-Adjusted Incidence of Diagnosed Diabetes per 1,000 Population Aged 18–79 Years, by Race/Ethnicity, United States, 1997–2011
The incidence of diagnosed diabetes was estimated from 1997 to 2011 due to small sample sizes of race/ethnicity groups prior to 1997. During this time period, the age-adjusted incidence increased among blacks and Hispanics. Among whites, the age-adjusted incidence increased from 1997 to 2007, and no significant change occurred in incidence from 2007 to 2011. Throughout the period, the age-adjusted incidence was higher among blacks and Hispanics compared with whites. In 2011, the age-adjusted incidence of diagnosed diabetes was 12.4 per 1,000 in blacks, 11.1 per 1,000 in Hispanics, and 7.0 per 1,000 in whites.
