Age-Adjusted Incidence of Diagnosed Diabetes per 1,000 Population Aged 18-79 Years, by Education, United States, 1980-2014

From 1980 to 2010, the age-adjusted incidence of diagnosed diabetes increased among adults aged 18–79 years regardless of the level of education. However, after 2010, the age–adjusted incidence of diagnosed diabetes significantly decreased among adults with greater than high school education. Among adults with less than a high school diploma or those with a high school diploma or equivalent, the age-adjusted incidence appeared to decline but not significantly. Throughout the period, compared with other groups, incidence rates were higher among those with less than a high school education.
