These were national prevalences and not age adjusted. In the data available there are age-adjusted data points which we might need as they provide an accurate assessment of cohorts.

2015 and 2040 were added for the prevalence of impaired glucose intolerance.

The data for 2014 came from an atlas poster for 6th edition and all other data came from a tool on the site. All this data can be located in the 5th, 6th and 7th edition of the Atlas.
