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 table does not include stateless employees or employees with unknown country background. An error was discovered which led to some man-days lost due to own sickness (lost man-days) being counted twice in the statistics. In the 3rd and 4th quarter of 2020, the published figures for sickness absence certified by a doctor was approximately 0.10 percentage points too high, and it increased further to around 0.16 percentage points in 2021. NAV and Statistics Norway published corrected figures back to 2018 on 2 June 2022. Statistics Norway published corrected figures back to 2015 on July 11th 2022 (except for 12439 which will be updated on 8th September).
