OECD Absence From Work Due To Illness Statistics

$179 / year

This dataset contains statistics for the absences from work and compensated absences from work due to illness for countries members of OECD (The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) and countries in accession negotiations with OECD. The perceived health status data cover the period 1970-2016.

Complexity

The dataset is provided by OECD (The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) whose mission is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. OECD’s work is based on continued monitoring of events in member countries as well as outside OECD area, and includes regular projections of short and medium-term economic developments.┬áThe OECD Secretariat collects and analyses data, after which committees discuss policy regarding this information, the Council makes decisions, and then governments implement recommendations. The OECD Health Datasets offers the most comprehensive source of comparable statistics on health and health systems across OECD countries. It is an essential tool to carry out comparative analyses and draw lessons from international comparisons of diverse health systems.

The number of self-reported work days lost per year due to illness per employed person it excludes maternity leave. There were two main data sources for the data on absence from work due to illness:

– data from household surveys (labor force, social or health surveys) providing estimates of self-reported absence from work due to illness, covering most if not all of the working population, regardless of whether the absence from work has been financially compensated or not
– data from administrative sources (often social security and other insurance agencies) providing estimates of compensated absence from work due to illness, typically covering only certain segments of the working population

Estimates from these two data sources are not directly comparable, and are therefore presented separately. The administrative sources were used to calculate the number of compensated work days lost per year due to illness per employed person (e.g., social security, public or private insurance agencies). At the same time there are differences in the coverage of the working population and in reporting systems which limit the comparability of data across countries. Data differences related to comparability limits across countries are specified in the dataset. For both indicators country level sources were used to retrieve the data.

Breaks in the time-related continuity of data on which the calculated indicators values are based are specified in the content of the dataset.
