    A pilot study was conducted to pretest the questionnaire for cross-cultural adaptation and validation, field procedures, sampling design, and data management plan.

    Standardized translated COPCORD questionnaires (blind translation and blind backtranslation) were administered by trained interviewers.

    Two weeks after Phase I, Phase II was conducted at local health centers.

    Identification of cases with rheumatic disease was based on American College of Rheumatology (ACR) criteria.


    Respondents completed 3006 questionnaires (phase I response rate 98%). Of these 489 respondents had musculoskeletal complaints.

    Functional disability was reported in 25% among these respondents.

    We examined 353 (phase II response rate 72%), revealing 294 with rheumatic conditions.

    In 26 persons there were no abnormalities, while 32 had nonrheumatic conditions at examination. (...)
