Data are % (95% CI). Before and after the ACA refer to 2009–2010 and 2015–2016, respectively. Data were adjusted for a linear time trend, as well as respondents’ age, race and ethnicity, sex, education, income, partner status, English language preference, and diagnosis status of diabetes. The three columns may not sum perfectly due to rounding. All quantities were calculated taking into account the complex sampling scheme of NHANES. FPL, federal poverty level.
