    Compared to the general population, African Americans are disproportionately affected by diabetes:

    • 4.9 million (an increase from 3.7 million in 2007), or 18.7% of all African Americans, aged 20 years or older, also have diabetes.

    • African Americans are 1.8 times more likely to have diabetes as non Hispanic whites.

    • 25 percent of African Americans between the ages of 65 and 74 have diabetes.

    • 1 in 4 African American women over 55 years of age has diabetes.
