Description:
   In addition to investigating aggregate trends in drug utilization among persons reporting treatment for diabetes, we examine anti-diabetic medication use in subgroups of this population. In particular, we examine trends within and differences across groups defined by age, race/ethnicity, health insurance, income, and education. Results presented for selected population characteristics and drug expenditures are estimated using pooled data for 1997-1998 and 2006-2007.
