Neck, Low Back and Joint Pain
Hand pain is self-reported based on 2 questions. Participants are first asked if they experienced pain or aching in any of their joints on most days for at least one month during the prior year. Those who answer affirmatively are then asked about location of the pain or aching.
Participants are asked the following questions:
|1||Yes - Pain in hands for most days for at least one month|
|2||No - No pain or pain that is not in hands|
Notes: At baseline interview, question #1 reads: In the past year, have you had any pain or aching in any of your joints on most days for at least one month?
The provided reference describes the baseline version of this variable.
