Prevalence of Diagnosed and Undiagnosed Diabetes in the United States, All Ages, 2007 - Total: 23.6 million people—7.8 percent of the population—have diabetes. Diagnosed: 17.9 million people / Undiagnosed: 5.7 million people

In 2005-2006, approximately 1.9 million Canadian men and women had been diagnosed with diabetes. This represents about 1 in 17 Canadians - 5.5 % of all women and 6.2 % of all men.

In 2005-2006, the prevalence was highest in Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, and lowest in the Yukon, Alberta and Nunavut .

The number of people with diagnosed diabetes continues to grow, with almost 200,000 new cases of diabetes diagnosed in 2005-2006 . In addition, it is known that a large number of individuals with diabetes have not been diagnosed and are unaware that they have the disease.

Older Canadians are more likely to have diabetes. In 2005-2006, twenty-two percent of people (approximately 1 in 5) in the 75-79 year old age group had been diagnosed with diabetes. This was almost ten times the proportion seen in Canadian adults aged 35-39 where the prevalence was 2.3%, or 1 in 432

Overall, in adults aged 20 and older, death rates for those with diabetes are two to three times greater than those of the general population.

Among 20-39 year olds, individuals with diabetes die at a rate more than six times that of the general population, while in the 60-79 year age group the rates are about twice as high.
