Changes in the sickness absence as of the 1st quarter of 2021
On June 3rd, a new method for calculating working hours will be implemented in the sickness absence statistics, where new figures will be published back to the first quarter of 2015. This entails a change in the sickness absence rate, through changes in sickness absence man-days (the numerator in the sickness absence rate) and the man-days (the denominator), both of which are adjusted for the FTE percentage.
|4th quarter 2020||Percentage change from last quarter|
|1The sickness absence rates are shown to two decimal points. In other tables the rates are shown with one decimal point. More decimal points are used when calculating the rates of change in order to get more accurate figures. These may therefore differ slightly from the rates of change produced when using the published rounded figures.|
