a Key: Without complications = without short-term or long-term complications. With short-term complications = with ketoacidosis, hyperosmolarity, or coma. With long-term complications = with renal, eye, neurological, circulatory, or other unspecified complications. Lower extremity amputations exclude trauma-related admissions.
b Rates are adjusted by age and gender, using the total U.S. population for 2000 as the standard population.
c Rates biased upward because data element was not available to exclude transfers.
Note: Not all States participate in the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project.
