Título Sickness absence among immigrants in Norway 1992-2003
Información bibliográfica Mar. 2010, Vol.53, No.1, p.35-52. Illus. 34 ref.
Resumen This study of long-term sickness absence among immigrants and ethnic Norwegians for the years 1992-2003 used register panel data containing detailed information on socio-economic background, labour market participation and social insurance benefits for all individuals aged between 16 and 67 years residing in Norway. The main findings are that there is no difference in sickness absence between ethnic Norwegians and immigrants from the other Nordic countries, Western and Eastern Europe after controlling for demographic, socio-economic and labour market factors. However, sickness absence rates are higher among individuals from Asia (men and women) and Africa (men), and lower among men from North America and Oceania compared with ethnic Norwegians. Second-generation immigrants share the same level of sickness absence as ethnic Norwegians. Implications of these and other findings are discussed.
