MORE THAN A QUARTER OF THE POPULATION IN PAIN

Twenty-seven percent of people in the US are currently experiencing pain, according to a survey of 3,982 people slated for publication in The Lancet.

“Those with lower income or less education spent a higher proportion of time in pain and reported higher average pain than did those with higher income or more education. The average pain rating increased with age, although it reached a plateau between the ages of about 45 years and 75 years, with little difference between men and women. Satisfaction with life or health and the pain indicators tended to move in opposite directions.”
