Employee and job attributes as predicotrs of absenteeism in a national sample of workers : the importance of health and dangerous working conditions.
This study reports on research which looks for employee and job characteristics which correlate with absenteeism.
A large cross-sectional national probability sample of workers employed for at least 20 hr per week is analyzed (n=1308).
The dependent variable is the number of self-reported absences during the past 14 days.
Thirty-seven independent variables are considered.
Ordinary Least Squares (multiple regressions), two-limit Tobits, and two-part models are used to assess the statistical and practical significance of possible covariates.
