The whisker chart shown above breaks down diabetes rates by sub-groups. Both Type 1 Diabetes (insufficient insulin production) and Type 2 Diabetes (cellular resistance to insulin) are broken out.
Two anomalies jump out at me. They show "data" for children for people listed as "elderly". One would expect that to be null or to be assigned a value of 1.0 as a place holder.
|The third whisker shows that Childhood, Type 1 Diabetes is 70% higher in Higher Income families than it is for the overall population.|
The other anomaly is high level of Type 1 Diabetes in High Income people. The only group that registers higher are children living in "The Fast Food Swamp". Nearly every other subgroup shows rates that are very, very close to 1.0, which is what one would expect of a genetic condition and very large sample sizes.
The glaring question should be: Are children of High Income families over-diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes or are other children under-diagnosed.
Could be a case of "you won't find it if you are not looking for it."?
