Background: Higher self‐reported disability (high Health Assessment Questionnaire [HAQ] score) has been associated with hospitalizations and mortality in established rheumatoid arthritis (RA), but associations in early RA are unknown.

Methods: Patients with early RA (symptom duration <1 year) enrolled in the Canadian Early Arthritis Cohort who initiated disease‐modifying antirheumatic drugs and had completed HAQ data at baseline and 1 year were included in the study. Discrete‐time proportional hazards models were used to estimate crude and multi‐adjusted associations of baseline HAQ and HAQ at 1 year with all‐cause mortality in each year of follow‐up.
