Adults Who Reported Some Form of Arthritis or a Related Condition, by Sex and Race/Ethnicity, United States 2006

Adults Who Reported Some Form of Arthritis or a Related Condition,* by Sex and Race/Ethnicity --- United States, 2006

* Based on response of adults age 18 and older to the National Health Information Survey question, "Have you ever been told by a doctor or other health professional that you have some form of arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, lupus, or fibromyalgia?"

Estimates were age adjusted using the projected 2000 U.S. population as the standard population and four age groups: 18--44 years, 45--64 years, 65--74 years, and >75 years. Estimates were based on household interviews of a sample of the civilian, noninstitutionalized U.S. population.

In 2006, women were more likely than men to report having some form of arthritis or a related condition. The prevalence was higher for non-Hispanic white men (19.7%) than non-Hispanic black men (16.4%) and Hispanic men (11.0%). Non-Hispanic black women (25.2%) and non-Hispanic white women (24.2%) had comparable prevalence, but both groups of women were more likely to report having some form of arthritis or a related condition than Hispanic women (18.3%).
