Crude and Age-Adjusted Percentage of Adults Aged 18 Years or Older with Diagnosed Diabetes Reporting Visual Impairment, United States, 1997–2011
From 1997 to 2011, the crude percentage of adults with diagnosed diabetes who reported visual impairment decreased 26.5% (from 26.0% to 19.1%). Trends in the crude and age-adjusted percentages of people reporting visual impairment were similar, suggesting that the aging of the population had little or no effect on trends during this time period.
