Back to Arthritis Burden.

*This question asked only of respondents who reported arthritis or joint symptoms that began more than 3 months ago.

^Use caution in interpreting percentages with a numerator of less than 20. N = numerator, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics and therefore cannot be calculated exactly from the numbers in this table.
