Out of 827 respondents who reported one or more health problems, 638 reported only one health problem, 139 reported two health problems,
35 reported three health problems, and 15 reported more tha n three problems.

**Physical Health Condition/Disease Categories: Arthritis, Asthma, Cancer, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Hypertension/High Blood Pressure, Lung Disease/Emphysema, Osteoporosis, Parkinson's Disease, Stroke.
