a Prior to 2002, racial categories were not directly comparable to those used for 2002 and later years' data; thus, race data for 2000 are not shown.

b Beginning in 2002, individuals could report multiple races. For 2002 and later years, Non-Hispanic categories exclude multiple race individuals and are not directly comparable to data from previous years.

c Less than high school graduate refers to fewer than 12 years of education; high school graduate, 12 years of education; and at least some college, more than 12 years of education. Number of persons does not add to overall total because data on this variable were not available for some sample persons.

d Employment status for persons age 40-64 only.

e Negative/poor refers to household incomes below the Federal poverty line; near poor/low, over the poverty line to just below 200 percent of the poverty line; middle, 200 percent to just below 400 percent of the poverty line; and high, 400 percent of the poverty line and over.

f See the MEPS entry in the Data Sources section of the Measure Specifications Appendix for more information.

g Adult diabetes population, age 40 and over, weighted with the person-level weight. Numbers may not add to total due to missing or rounding.

h Estimates are age adjusted to the 2000 standard population with 2 age-groups: 40-59, 60 and over, except where indicated. Denominator excludes missing values.
