    * Numbers in parentheses are the number of people with diagnosed diabetes in the cell expressed as a percentage of the projected population in the cell, i.e., prevalence of diagnosed diabetes in the cell.

  • The last row is the 2050 projected numbers as a percentage of the 2000 projected numbers.
