    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    To evaluate the performance of a questionnaire on sickness absence due to back pain and respiratory disorders with the view of using sickness absence as a measure of morbidity.

    Methods-A cross sectional survey was conducted among 511 male workers aged 20-65, drawn from the personnel register of an animal feed mill.

    The response was 404 (79%) participants

    The survey found a moderate agreement between the questionnaire and the medical register for duration and frequency of overall sickness absence with K values of 0.54 and 0.50.

    A good agreement was found for back pain absence with K values of 0.65 and 0.61.

    Respiratory absence showed a poor agreement of 0.16 and 0.13.
