Abstract This document describes the development of a model to estimate the socio-economic costs of work stress at the national level. Sources of stress at work are discussed along with resulting health effects and the need for prevention at the national level. Calculations for the model are based on estimates of the prevalence of stressors at the workplace and their health outcomes in terms of excess sickness associated with exposure to these stressors. The application of the model is demonstrated using illustrative results for Denmark and Sweden.
