This paper reviewed literature studies on arthritis treatment and diagnosis, as well as performed statistical analysis on arthritis diagnosis, leisure walks, and education levels using the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) 2011-2012 adult data as the secondary data source to gain an understanding of the associations between leisure walks and education levels with arthritis diagnosis. The IBM SPSS version 22 was used to perform the Chi-square tests for the data used in this study. The statistical analysis included the survey data from 42,935 (100%) responses on both arthritis diagnosis and education levels and 42,586 (99.2%) on leisure walks. The Chi-square test results showed that both leisure walks and education levels were associated with an arthritis diagnosis, which agreed with the findings from the literature reviewed in this study. Leisure walk participation rates were higher in the non-arthritis population. Education levels were also found to be associated with an arthritis diagnosis.
