Geographic Variations in Arthritis Prevalence, Health-Related Characteristics, and Management United States, 2015 https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/67/ss/ss6704a1.htm?s_cid=ss6704a1_e Kamil E. Barbour, PhD; Susan Moss, MS; Janet B. Croft, PhD; et al.
Arthritis is a common chronic condition affecting an estimated 54 million adults in the United States. CDC analyzed data from the 2015 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System to characterize arthritis among adults aged 18 years in the United States (including Guam and Puerto Rico). This report provides state-level estimates of arthritis prevalence among adults. Health-related characteristics including general health, leisure-time physical activity and obesity, activity limitations, and pain as well as arthritis management measures were estimated. Possible state-specific clustering of health-related characteristics also was examined. The findings highlight notable geographic variability in arthritis prevalence, health-related characteristics, and management.
