Título Commuter travel and sickness absence of London office workers
Información bibliográfica Aug. 1972, Vol.26, No.3, p.165-172. Illus. 12 ref.
Resumen The relationship between the pattern of commuter travel to work and sickness absence was studied in a population of 1984 office workers in central London. The median journey time was 1h; the average journey had 2.8 stages. One third of the sample considered their journey uncomfortable. The number of journey stages was the most important factor relating to both certified and uncertified sickness. The use of a car or a journey lasting >1.5h was associated with higher uncertified rates of absence. The incidence of certified influenza did not relate to any specific aspect of the journey, including the use of public transport.
