Age-Adjusted Incidence of Diagnosed Diabetes per 1,000 Population Aged 18-79 Years, by Race/Ethnicity, United States, 1997-2014

The age-adjusted incidence of diagnosed diabetes by race/ethnicity was estimated from 1997 to 2014 because of small sample sizes of racial/ethnic groups before 1997. Among Hispanics, age-adjusted incidence of diagnosed diabetes increased from 1997 to 2009 and showed no consistent change after 2009. From 1997 to 2014, age-adjusted incidence did not significantly change among blacks. However, among whites, age-adjusted incidence of diagnosed diabetes significantly increased from 1997 to 2008, and significantly decreased from 2008 to 2014. Throughout the period, incidence rates were lower among whites than among blacks or Hispanics.
