  1. Physical disability among Canadians reporting musculoskeletal diseases.

    Article - En anglais

    About one million Canadian adults are estimated to have physical disabilities attributed to a musculoskeletal condition, a prevalence of 50.1/1,000 adults (all rates expressed/1,000).

    The specific musculoskeletal disease rates were arthritis/rheumatism (27.2), back (16.2), « other » (4.6), trauma (3.6) and bone (0.6).

    More women reported disabling musculoskeletal disease (61.0 versus 38.6, respectively).

    Prevalence rates increased with age from 6.2 among Canadians aged 15-24 years, to 264.7 aged 85 years and over.

    Limitations of mobility were more common than those of agility.
