  • Description:
    In this report are presented findings on the prevalence of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) obtained from Cycle I of the Health Examination Survey. Cycle I consisted of examinations of a nationwide probability sample of persons 18-79 years of age selected from the U.S. civilian, noninstitutional population. This report describes the steps taken in diagnosing RA, presents the data collected, and compares the information obtained in this survey with that obtained in other surveys. The relationship of the prevalence of RA to the demographic variables of age, race, sex, family income, education, family size, place description, marital status, usual activity, occupation, and industry aye examined. Some 3.6 million adults had RA. 8A was more prevalent in women than in men. The likelihood of having RA was about the same for both white and Negro adults. The prevalence of RA varied by certain other demographic factors. Among the differentials noted was a lower than expected RA prevalence for persons with more education and a lower than expected prevalence for men in the professions and in technical and managerial fields.
