||The aim of this study was to examine longitudinally the mutual relationship between shift work and depressive complaints. Data from the ongoing Maastricht cohort study (1998-2008) were used. Firstly, the impact of shift work on the development of depressive complaints was studied. Secondly, the impact of depressed mood on changes in shift work at one-year follow-up was studied. Analyses were stratified for gender and age. Overall, the impact of shift work on the development of depressed mood over a ten-year period was small. Retrospective analyses found higher odds of depressed mood and depressive disorder among former or current male shift workers than among those never having done shift work. Results lacked significance when correcting for demographic and work-related factors. Implications of these and other findings are discussed.
