Abstract Despite numerous attempts, no cause and effect relationship between unemployment and somatic diseases has been found. People may become ill because they are unemployed (causality hypothesis), or they may become unemployed because they are ill or have other predispositions (selection hypothesis). This issue contains the papers presented at the meeting of the International Commission of Occupational Health working group on unemployment and health held in Paris, France, 25-26 September 1998. Topics: conference; ICOH; industrial physicians; mental health; risk factors; social aspects; state of health; suicide; unemployment.
