||VISAT (see also CIS 01-597) is a survey conducted by industrial physicians and researchers specialised in ageing, ergonomics and occupational health. A total of 3,237 employees were randomly selected from persons aged 32, 42, 52 and 62 in 1996, when the first data were collected. After a 10-year follow-up, the study will cover 40 years of adult life (from 32 to 72). The objective is a better understanding of how present and past working conditions have a favourable or unfavourable influence on the quality on ageing and on health. Preliminary results indicate a very strong relationship between health problems and periods of unemployment.
