The prevalence of juvenile arthritis

, : The prevalence of juvenile arthritis. Arthritis & Rheumatism 26(5): 599-603

A secondary analysis of 2 new large practitioner surveys, 1 national and 1 local, showed the prevalance of juvenile arthritis to be between 0.16 and 0.43 cases/1000 children. These rates compare quite closely with the majority of reports both in the USA and the world. The prevalence of juvenile arthritis is between 0.2 and 1 case/1000 children (13,000-63,000 children), with the best estimate being .apprx. 0.5 cases/1000 children. Based on the 1980 census data, this latter estimate means there are .apprx. 32,000 children with juvenile arthritis in the USA.
