UK Employees' Sickness Absence: 1984-2005
This article reports the proportion of contracted work hours that are lost due to sickness absence in the UK. These rates of sickness absence are calculated for all employees across time and across various economic and demographic characteristics using the largest sample possible from the UK Labour Force Surveys. Quantifying sickness absence is of interest to practitioners and researchers because it represents lost work hours for employees and employers, it also highlights issues relating to the health of the workforce.
