QuickStats: Percentage of Adults Aged 18 Years or Older with Disability by Diagnosed Diabetes Status and Age Group

In 2018, among adults aged 18 years or older, those ever receiving a diagnosis of diabetes were more likely to have disability than those never receiving a diagnosis of diabetes (27.1% versus 8.1%).

This pattern was consistent among adults aged 18–44 (16.3% versus 4.4%), 45–64 (24.5% versus 8.1%), and 65 years or older (33.3% versus 18.5%).

Regardless of diabetes status, the percentage of adults with disability increased with age.
