From 1980 to 2014, the age-adjusted rates of diagnosed diabetes per 100 U.S. civilian, non-institutionalized population increased 152% (from 2.5 to 6.3) for white males. For white females, the age-adjusted rates per 100 increased 116% (from 2.5 to 5.4) from 1990 to 2009. Rates in this group changed little from 1980 to 1990 and from 2009 to 2014. The age-adjusted rates per 100 for black males increased 136% (from 3.9 to 9.2) from 1980 to 2014. For black females, the age-adjusted rates per 100 changed little from 1980 to 1997 and then increased 30% (from 7.6 to 9.9) from 1997 to 2014.
