Back to Arthritis Burden.

For those with arthritis, this question was asked regardless of the their employment status.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to changes in the weighting methodology and other factors, results from 2011 are NOT comparable to previous years.

***The estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards. See BRFSS 2011 Annual Results Technical Notes for more details.

NOTE: In 2011, the State Center for Health Statistics developed its own set of sample weights for N.C. counties and AHEC regions.
These county and AHEC weights cannot also be used to weight the data for the three N.C. regions. Consequently, regional results are not shown here, as in previous years.

^Use caution in interpreting cell sizes less than 50., % = 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.
