Errata: Vol. 56, No. 17

In the report, "Projected State-Specific Increases in Self-Reported Doctor-Diagnosed Arthritis and Arthritis-Attributable Activity Limitations --- United States, 2005--2030," multiple errors occurred.

On page 423, the fifth sentence of the first paragraph should read: "The results indicate that, among 50 states, the median projected increase in doctor-diagnosed arthritis from 2005 to 2030 will be 34%; a total of 10 states are projected to have increases of 50% to 99%, and three states are projected to see their numbers more than double."

The last paragraph should read: "From 2005 to 2030, the number of adults with doctor-diagnosed arthritis is projected to increase by a median of 34% in 50 states (range: 10% [West Virginia] to 134% [Arizona]); in 10 states, the projected increase ranges from 50% to 99%; three states (Arizona, Florida, and Nevada) are projected to see their numbers more than double (Table). The median projected increase in the absolute number of persons with doctor-diagnosed arthritis in these same states is 310,000 (range: 21,000 [North Dakota] to 3,654,000 [Florida]); the comparable median increase in those with arthritis-attributable activity limitations is 103,000 (range: 8,000 [North Dakota] to 1,336,000 [Florida]) (Table). Primarily because of an expected population decline, the District of Columbia is projected to have decreases in the numbers of adults with doctor-diagnosed arthritis and arthritis-attributable activity limitations."

The footnote at the bottom of the second column should read: "The number of adults with arthritis-attributable activity limitations is projected to increase similarly."

On page 425, the second sentence of the first paragraph should read: "On the basis of U.S. Census-projected increases in state populations overall and their older age distributions, all 50 states are expected to have an increase in the number of adults reporting doctor-diagnosed arthritis and arthritis-attributable activity limitations by the year 2030, including 10 states with increases of >50%, and three states that are projected to see their numbers more than double."

On page 424, the Table should read:
