Description:

Modelled estimate of the percentage of people aged 18 years or over who have been told by a doctor in the previous 12 months that they have a musculoskeletal condition (Back condition, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis).

Numerator: INIsPHO 2015
Denominator: CSO population estimates/projections, 2015

The IPH estimated prevalence per cents may be marginally different to estimated prevalence per cents taken directly from the reference study. There are two reasons for this:

1) The IPH prevalence estimates relate to 2010 while the reference studies relate to earlier years (Northern Ireland Health and Social Wellbeing Survey 2005/06, Survey of Lifestyle, Attitudes and Nutrition 2007, Understanding Society 2009). Although we assume that the risk of the condition in the risk groups do not change over time, the distribution of the number of people in the risk groups in the population changes over time (eg the population ages).  This new distribution of the risk groups in the population means that the risk of the condition is weighted differently to the reference study and this results in a different overall prevalence estimate.

2) The IPH prevalence estimates are based on a statistical model of the reference study. The model includes a number of explanatory variables to predict the risk of the condition. Therefore the model does not include records from the reference study that are missing data on these explanatory variables. A prevalence estimate for a condition taken directly from the reference study would include these records.

Date data covers:
01/01/2015 to 31/12/2015

Indicator numerator:
Modelled estimate/forecast of the number of people aged 18 years or over who have been told by a doctor in the previous 12 months that they have a musculoskeletal condition
