Adult Diabetes by Income
- Adults from households earning less than $35,000 per year consistently report the highest percentage of diabetes.
- Those with a household income of $75,000 or more per year report the lowest percentage of diabetes.
- The difference between the income groups appears to be widening. In 2013, 12.5% of adult Connecticut residents with a household income less than $35,000 per year reported having diabetes and 6.0% of those earning $75,000 per year reported having diabetes, a difference of 6.5%. By 2018, the difference increased to 9.3% (15.3% for those in households earning less than $35,000 per year, and 6.0% for those in households earning more than $75,000).
