Complete Health Indicator Report of Arthritis Prevalence

Definition

Percentage of persons who have ever been told by a doctor or other health professional that they have some form of arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, lupus, or fibromyalgia.

Numerator

Includes survey respondents ages 18 and older who reported being told by a doctor or other health professional that they had some form of arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, lupus, or fibromyalgia. Excludes those with missing, don't know, and refused answers.

Denominator

Includes survey respondents ages 18 and older. Excludes those with missing, don't know, or refused answers.

Data Interpretation Issues

Because age affects the likelihood of having arthritis, it is beneficial to adjust for the effect of age when comparing populations. This helps determine if a certain population has factors that contribute to arthritis prevalence other than the effect of age. Beginning in 2011, BRFSS data included both landline and cell phone respondent data along with a new weighting methodology called iterative proportional fitting, or raking. This methodology utilizes additional demographic information (such as education, race, and marital status) in the weighting procedure. Both of these methodology changes were implemented to account for an increased number of U.S. households without landline phones and an under-representation of certain demographic groups that were not well-represented in the sample. More details about these changes can be found at: [https://ibis.health.utah.gov/pdf/opha/resource/brfss/RakingImpact2011.pdf].

Why Is This Important?

Arthritis affects 54 million adults (1 in every 4) in the United States and is projected to increase. Arthritis is a leading cause of disability and is associated with substantial activity limitation, work disability, and reduced quality of life. In 2018, the percent of Utah adults aged 18 and older with arthritis was 21.6 percent (crude rate). This represents approximately 481,400 individuals based on the estimated Utah population 18 and older for 2018.

Healthy People Objective AOCBC-8:

Increase the proportion of adults with doctor-diagnosed arthritis who have had effective, evidence-based arthritis education as an integral part of the management of their condition
U.S. Target: 11.7 percent
State Target: 12.1 percent

How Are We Doing?

Roughly one in every five Utah adults have reported having arthritis over the past several years. As people age, the likelihood of having arthritis increases. For example, 5.0 percent of adults aged 18-34 reported having arthritis whereas one in every two (50.4 percent) adults 65 years and older reported having arthritis (combined years 2016-2018). As the older adult population increases in the coming years, the prevalence of arthritis is also projected to increase. Women 65 years and older were the most likely to have arthritis with 56.6 percent reporting arthritis. This was significantly greater than the rate for men of the same age (43.1 percent). Women were more likely to have arthritis for all age groups. Other groups that were less likely to have arthritis included college graduates, Hispanics, and adults making more than $75,000 a year when compared to those with less education, non-Hispanics, and those making less than $75,000 a year, respectively. Arthritis prevalence also differed by geographic location. The age-adjusted prevalence of arthritis (combined years 2016-2018) in local health districts ranged from a low of 19.2 percent in Summit County Health District to a high of 29.6 percent in Southeast Utah Health District. Health districts with rates significantly lower than the state rate included Utah County and Salt Lake County. Health districts with rates significantly higher than the state rate included Southeast Utah, Tooele County, Central Utah, Weber-Morgan, and TriCounty.

How Do We Compare With the U.S.?

The age-adjusted prevalence of arthritis in Utah was 22.9 percent in 2018, which was slightly lower than the U.S. age-adjusted rate of 23.7 percent.

What Is Being Done?

The Utah Arthritis Program focuses on measuring the occurrence of arthritis in Utah, increasing arthritis awareness and educational opportunities, and promoting participation in programs proven to help persons with arthritis, pain, and other chronic conditions. Additionally, the Utah Arthritis Program supports health systems, clinics, and physicians using strategies and resources that support healthcare provider-patient counseling to increase physical activity and referrals to the evidence-based workshops and exercise classes [https://www.selfmanagementresource.com/programs/small-group/chronic-disease-self-management/ proven] to help patients improve their mental and physical health. Physicians can use the [http://livingwell.utah.gov/docs/physicianPortal_Instructions.pdf Living Well physician portal] to refer patients to the evidence-based classes.

Evidence-based Practices

The Utah Arthritis Program partners with healthcare, nonprofit, and government organizations across Utah to deliver evidence-based workshops to help people better manage arthritis, pain, and other chronic conditions. Schedules and locations of these workshops can be found at [http://livingwell.utah.gov/]. The UAP recommends and supports the *Chronic Disease Self-Management Programs, EnhanceFitness, Walk With Ease, Living Well with a Disability, and the Arthritis Foundation Exercise Program which have been proven to improve the quality of life for people with arthritis and other chronic conditions. *Chronic Disease Self-Management programs include:[[br]] - Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP) as known as Living Well with Chronic Conditions[[br]] - Diabetes Self-Management Program (DSMP) also known as Living Well with Diabetes[[br]] - Chronic Pain Self-Management Program (CPSMP) also known as Living Well with Chronic Pain[[br]] - Tomando Control de su Salud (Spanish CDSMP)[[br]] - Better Choices Better Health (online CDSMP)[[br]] [[br]] For additional information on these programs visit [https://www.cdc.gov/arthritis/interventions/index.htm] or [http://livingwell.utah.gov/].

Health Program Information

The vision of the Utah Arthritis Program is to increase self-management skills and improve the quality of life for all Utahns affected by arthritis and other chronic conditions. The Utah Arthritis Program provides technical assistance and coordination to increase awareness, expand reach, and achieve sustainability of evidence-based self-management programs for all Utahns affected by arthritis and other chronic conditions through statewide partnerships.

Related Indicators

Relevant Population Characteristics

The population characteristic most relevant to arthritis is the age distribution of the population. As the Utah population ages, a greater percentage of Utahns will be at risk for developing arthritis. People with arthritis are also more likely to report being obese, depressed, and to getting injured from falling.

Related Relevant Population Characteristics Indicators:


Health Care System Factors

The aging population in Utah is likely to lead to an increase in the prevalence of arthritis that can have dramatic consequences in terms of disability and health care expenditures. Access to health care is still a problem for many Utahns. Individuals who cannot obtain needed health care tend to have higher rates of death and disability from chronic disease. Cost is the most commonly reported barrier to getting needed health care.

Related Health Care System Factors Indicators:


Risk Factors

The prevalence of arthritis increases with age. Females are more likely to report arthritis than males. White, non-Hispanic individuals are more likely to report arthritis than Hispanic persons. Being overweight or obese and smoking are also risk factors. Specific genes are associated with a higher risk of certain types of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), systemic lupus erythematous (SLE), and ankylosing spondylitis. Other risk factors include joint injuries, infection, and occupations that involve repetitive knee bending and squatting.

Related Risk Factors Indicators:


Health Status Outcomes

In 2018, 27.2 percent of Utah adults with arthritis reported being in fair or poor health, and 32.2 percent reported experiencing seven or more days in the last month when their physical health was not good (age-adjusted rates). The relationship between arthritis and mental health is less dramatic than physical health but still of great importance as 27.9 percent of adults with arthritis reported seven or more days of poor mental health in the past month. This is significantly higher than the 15.6 percent of adults without arthritis that reported seven or more days or poor mental health in the past month (age-adjusted rates).
