Age-Adjusted Percentage of Adults with Diagnosed Diabetes Reporting Mobility Limitation, by Task, United States, 1997–2011

Trends in the age-adjusted percentage of adults aged 18 years or older with diagnosed diabetes who reported a mobility limitation varied by task. For walking a quarter mile, the age-adjusted percentage decreased from 1997 to 2000, increased from 2000 to 2003, showed no change from 2003 to 2009, and increased from 2009 to 2011. For climbing up 10 steps, the percentage decreased from 1997 to 2000 and showed little or no change afterwards. For standing for 2 hours and for stooping, bending, or kneeling, the age-adjusted percentage of adults reporting these limitations showed little or no change from 1997 to 1999 and then increased afterwards. In 2011, the age-adjusted percentage of adults with diagnosed diabetes reporting a mobility limitation was 27.8% for climbing up 10 steps, 36.6% for walking a quarter mile, 38.0% for standing for 2 hours, and 44.3% for stooping, bending, or kneeling.
