Supplementary notes

*The sickness absence rate is the percentage of working hours that are lost due to sickness absences for men and women.
**The sickness absence rate by employment status is calculated for all people in employment aged 16 and over.
***Quarterly datasets were used to generate annual averages.

Sickness absence rates do not account for the total length of absence because the Labour Force Survey can only measure up to seven days off work during the interviewee’s reference week.
