Supplementary notes

Current Population Survey (CPS of Census Bureau) considers a full-time worker to be anyone who usually works at least 35 hours a week. The amount of health-related workplace absenteeism is calculated as the percentage of full-time workers who worked less than 35 hours because they were ill, injured, or had another medical issue.

Absenteeism is estimated each month using CPS survey data; each estimate has a margin of error. Absenteeism is considered significantly higher than expected when the lower limit of the estimate’s margin of error is higher than the epidemic threshold. The epidemic threshold is calculated using baseline absenteeism data from the previous five years, averaged by month, and information about the likely variation of these baseline data.
