- Answered 30 Dec 2019 Conflict of interest declaration: None The Annals of Rheumatic Diseases recently published “Global, regional and national burden of rheumatoid arthritis 1990–2017: a systematic analysis of the Global Burden of Disease study 2017” , but unfortunately it is not open access! However, if you follow the link [reference 2] you can see a number of graphs! A 2010 paper, which seems to be an earlier version of the above, “The global burden of rheumatoid arthritis: estimates from the Global Burden of Disease 2010 study”  is available as full-text’. I also found “Prevalence of rheumatoid arthritis in low– and middle–income countries: A systematic review and analysis” , which is full-text, albeit for LMICs!
