Status: Baseline only
Reduce the proportion of adults with provider-diagnosed arthritis who are limited in their ability to work for pay due to arthritis
Baseline: 33.0 percent of adults aged 18 to 64 with provider-diagnosed arthritis were limited in their ability to work for pay due to arthritis in 2014 (age adjusted to the year 2000 standard population)
Target: 29.5 percent
Data Source: National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), CDC/NCHS
Many adults with arthritis are limited in their ability to work. They may be more likely to miss work, be less productive at work, lose their job, and earn less money. Teaching people to manage their condition, like interventions to increase physical activity, may address work limitations by reducing pain and disability.
