Статья затрагивает актуальный вопрос своевременной диагностики ревматических болезней, распространенность которых неуклонно растет, несмотря на автоматизацию и совершенствование технологических процессов в производственной сфере. Отмечу как важный аспект - выявление авторами особенностей распространенности жалоб ревматического характера не только от трудовой деятельности, но и от места жительства, бытовых условий, а также возраста респондентов. Для обработки данных применены современные статистические методы. Содержательные таблицы и рисунки помогают наглядно оценить результаты работы.
