||Work disability in the Netherlands: Data, conceptual aspects, and perspectives
||June 2002, Vol.44, No.6, p.510-515. 38 ref.
||Data on work disability are not standardized with respect to the definitions of the main variables. As a consequence, such data do not usually provide reliable information about health problems and related outcome measures. Examples of this unreliability are provided by the different approaches used in Dutch social security compared with national statistics on disability. It is recommended that a single concept be developed and used in order to make data comparable. The recently-presented International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health by the WHO seems to be a sound base for further exploration of the possibilities of standardization in occupational health and social security.
