About the 'Good Days' Survey

The 'Good Days' Survey was conducted in August 2009 as part of a global initiative assessing the lifestyles of women with rheumatoid arthritis in seven major industrialized countries: Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Objectives of the Survey included identification of the physical and emotional impact of RA on day-to-day lives of women living with the disease. A component of the Survey examined the affects of the disease on people living with RA during the festive season.

Nearly 2,000 women aged between 25-65 years living with RA for six months or more were interviewed online about the impact of the disease on their lives.

About Rheumatoid Arthritis

It is estimated that 5 million people suffer from RA globally. Prevalence is not split evenly between genders, since women are three times more likely to be affected than men. Although RA can affect people of all ages, the onset of the disease usually occurs between 35-55 years of age.

RA symptoms often lead to restricted mobility and permanent damage and disfigurement of the joints and bones. People living with RA are at a higher risk of developing other conditions, including heart disease, stroke, depression, infections, lung problems and osteoporosis.
