Updated projected prevalence of self-reported doctor-diagnosed arthritis and arthritis-attributable activity limitation among US adults, 2015-2040

 Arthritis & Rheumatism

Baseline prevalence data were obtained from the 2010-2012 National Health Interview Survey to provide updated projections of arthritis prevalence and arthritis-attributable activity limitations (AAAL) for adults. In 2010-2012, there were 52.5 million (22.7%) US adults with doctor-diagnosed arthritis of who 22.7 million (9.8% of all adults) had AAAL. By 2040 the prevalence of doctor-diagnosed arthritis is projected to increase 49% to 78.4 million (25.9% of adults). The number of adults with AAAL will also increase 52% to 34.6 million (11.4% of all adults) These projections suggest arthritis and AAAL will remain large and growing problems for clinical and public health systems.  READ MORE
