Days Lost Due To Work Related Illness By Gender And Age In UK

$447.50 / year

This dataset contains estimates for the number of working days lost due to work-related illness and the rate of working days lost per worker and the rate of working days lost per case of work-related illness, by type of illness, gender and occupation, in the United Kingdom. The statistics are calculated by Health and Safety Executive (HSE) based on the Labor Force Survey (LFS) data provided by the Office for National Statistics.

Complexity

For working days lost, the Labor Force Survey (LFS) gives estimates and rates of the total number of days off work due to work-related illness where:

– Working days lost due to work-related illness is a measure of the total time lost due to all episodes of the illness over the 12 month reference period whereas working days lost due to workplace injury is a measure of the elapsed time between injury and returning to work and does not include any subsequent time taken off work
– Rates presented are in the form of average annual working days lost (full-day equivalent) per case of work-related illness and average annual working days lost (full-day equivalent) per full-time equivalent worker

With roots stretching back to 1833 the modern HSE is an independent regulator with over forty years’ experience helping Great Britain work well. The Labor Force Survey is a survey of households living at private addresses in the UK. Its purpose is to provide information on the UK labor market which can then be used to develop, manage, evaluate and report on labor market policies. The survey is managed by the Office for National Statistics in Great Britain and by the Central Survey Unit of the Department of Finance and Personnel in Northern Ireland on behalf of the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment (DETINI).

Since 1992, the LFS in Great Britain has run as a quarterly survey (fiscal year 1994-1995 for Northern Ireland). The quarterly surveys have until spring 2006 operated on a seasonal quarter basis. However, mostly due to an EU requirement under regulation, in May 2006 the LFS moved to calendar quarters. The 2006-2007 fiscal year data is the first set of HSE data based on the LFS to be affected by this change. The LFS is intended to be representative of the whole population of the UK, and the sample design currently consists of around 37,000 responding households in every quarter. The quarterly survey has a panel design whereby households stay in the sample for five consecutive quarters (or waves), with a fifth of the sample replaced each quarter. Thus there is an 80% overlap in the samples for each successive survey.
