Estimated Years of Life Lost (YLL) due to Diabetes, United States, 2013Years of life lost (YLL) due to diabetes measure the number of deaths due to diabetes as a proportion of the total YLL lost in the population due to premature mortality multiplied by a standard life expectancy at the age at which death occurs.

Notes: Average YLLs due to diabetes are averaged across each age year in the age group. Total estimates represent the weighted average of the age/sex group estimates, where the weights represent the relative share of persons with diabetes accounted for by each group by state.

Estimated numbers are rounded independently and may not add to totals.
