Note: The above data are best estimates calculated from available data, including Diabetes spending from the American Diabetes Association, Diabetes prevalence from the CDC, population demographics from Census ACS 2007, the CMS Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey, and Medicare data from Kaiser Family Fund. Some numbers may not be additive due to rounding errors. In some cases, the estimated Diabetes Prevalence for the Medicare 65+ population exceeds the estimated Diabetes Prevalence for the General 65+ population. This discrepancy is due to more recent Medicare data available and diabetes patients moving over time from the 18-64 non-Medicare population into the Medicare 65+ population, as well as the difficulty in applying National prevalence rates by age and gender to Congressional District populations of varying demographic breakdowns.
