This study aimed to investigate the prevalence and factors associated with arthritis rheumatoid using a screening program among Shahrekord cohort study population. The present analytical cross-sectional study was performed on 1043 participants of the PERSIAN cohort study in Shahrekord, Iran. The prevalence of rheumatic disorder (RD) was 57.5% (95% CI: 53-62 %). Females were more likely to develop RD than males (odds ratio [OR]=2.83, P<0.001). Additionally, with increasing age (OR=1.03, P<0.001) and body mass index (OR=1.03, P<0.001), the chance of developing RD increased. Moreover, the chance of developing RD in males with industrial jobs was higher than in males with non-industrial jobs (OR=1.53, P=0.07). The prevalence of RD in this study was high. The female gender, old age, and obesity were among the factors related to RD in this study. As a result, public education is necessary to modify the behavioral pattern and lifestyle.
