Abstract

The SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth Study (SEARCH Study) reported on estimated trends in the incidence of type 1 and type 2 diabetes (T1D and T2D) among youths at five centers in the United States during 2002-2012 (1) . The SEARCH Study previously demonstrated increases in the prevalence of both types of diabetes during 2001-2009 (2) . After calculating the annual incidence rates for the period from 2002 to 2012, the incidence trends were analyzed by generalized autoregressive moving-average models with 2-year moving averages. In total, 11,245 youths, aged 0-19 years, in 4.9 million youths of this age group were diagnosed as T1D, and 2,846 youths, aged 10-19 years, in 2.5 million youths of this age group were diagnosed as T2D.
