Large changes in the sickness absence rates from one year to another should be interpreted with caution. Occupations with few observations will experience large changes even if the change in sickness absence days are small in absolute numbers. The sickness absence rate (sickness absence days in per cent of contractual working days) is here adjusted based on a vacation correction factor. Explained in more detail, the denominator (contractual working days) in the sickness absence rate is adjusted down based on information about people¿s vacation absence. Adjusting for vacation absence was abandoned in 2019. There will be discrepancies between the sickness absence rates that are corrected for vacation and those that are not.
