Back pain is considered as a complicated and often undetectable disease. there is no exact statistical report on such a prevalence of back pain during one year in Iran, The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of back pain during one year using the meta-analysis method. Methods: Twenty - four research papers were obtained using the keywords "prevalence of low-back pain and back pain" through the nationally available databases of Magiran - MEDLIBE - SID - IRANMEDEX and English databases of PubMed - Google scholar - Scopus. Analysis of data's was performed using meta-analysis (random model effects). Heterogeneity among the studies was investigated using the I2 test. Results: The prevalence rate of one-year low back pain in all 24 studies was found 51.6 (95 CI: 42.9-60.3) during one year with a sample size of 31039 people. The disease prevalence in pregnant and pregnancy age women was more than that of the other social groups with an average of 66.3 (95 CI: 54.5-78,1). The highest and lowest prevalence rates of one-year back pain were observed in Amol and Mazandaran respectively, with an average of 81 and 17.4.
