In this issue of the Scandinavian Journal of Pain Rana Qadeer and co workers  have extrapolated information from a national data base in Canada  that is derived from structured interviews as opposed to more standard questionnaire data. This article addresses some interesting questions about pain and physical/mental health in a segment of the Canadian population. The major findings are that “emerging adults” have a prevalence of chronic pain, psychiatric diagnoses, and chronic disease states almost to the same degree as revealed by surveys from the whole adult population. The young are commonly thought to be relatively healthy as opposed to an older population but this does not seem the case in this cross-sectional survey. The interactions of chronic disease, mental health, including substance abuse and pain are reviewed with some surprising and some not so surprising conclusions. The statistics make interpretation in simple terms for a non-statistician a bit difficult but the data are important, not only for those interested in pain but also for all healthcare providers.1Emerging adults in transition from child to adult: 15 and 30 years of ageThe identification of this age group, initially ages 18-25  but subsequently extended and in this article
