Refer to Table 4 (PDF)Opens a new browser window., Table 5 (PDF)Opens a new browser window., and Table 6 (PDF)Opens a new browser window. for detailed counts of deaths, age-adjusted rates, and 95 percent confidence intervals by county of residence.  Trend charts showing age-adjusted diabetes death rates by county are accessible through the links provided below.

Of the counties that had reliable rates for every year during the study period, six had statistically significant trends in the diabetes death rate over time.  San Francisco, Shasta, and Ventura counties showed significant decreasing trends, and Kern, Santa Clara, and Solano had significant increasing trends.
