    Answer:

    20.73 ≈ 21 persons per year

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Data provided in the question:

    Total population of Texas = 17.7 million

    People having diabetes = 1.45 million

    Number of new cases of diabetes diagnosed for the first time = 366,921

    Now,

    the incidence of diabetes in Texas

    = [ Number of new cases diagnosed ] ÷ [ Total population ]

    = 366,921 ÷ 17.7 million

    = 366,921 ÷ 17,700,000

    = 0.02073

    thus,

    the incidence of diabetes in Texas per 1000 persons

    =  0.02073 × 1,000

    = 20.73 ≈ 21 persons per year
