Uncovering the risks of activity limitations from arthritis

For the National Health Interview Survey (2010-2012), US adults reported whether a doctor had diagnosed them with arthritis, and if their activities were limited because of arthritis. Over one-fifth (22.7% or 52.5 million) of respondents 18 years and older said they had doctor-diagnosed arthritis, including 49.7% of adults 65 years and older. Prevalence of arthritis was high among people with heart disease (49.0%) and diabetes (47.3%).
