  1. Trends in mortality from diabetes mellitus in Taiwan, 1960-1988.

    Article - En anglais

    The increasing trends of mortality from diabetes mellitus in Taiwan are becoming a public health concern.

    The age-adjusted death rate for diabetes was 3.7 per 100,000 population in 1960, which increased to 23.2 per 100,000 in 1988, a 6.3-fold increase over the past 30 years.

    The mortality data for diabetes in Taiwan from 1960 to 1988 for both sexes are presented and analysed using an age-period-cohort model in order to gain a better understanding of the possible determinants of the time trends of this disease.

    Steeply increasing trends which are particularly prominent in the elderly are found in the periods studied.
