Información bibliográfica Research Management Branch, Employment Department, Moorfoot, Sheffield S1 4PQ, United Kingdom, Sep. 1992. xii, 36p. 23 ref.
Resumen Drinking patterns and the relationship between alcohol consumption and sickness absence among different groups of employees were examined using data from the 1984 General Household Survey. The main finding was that while there is a slight association between heavy drinking and higher rates of absence among men, there is a stronger association between the combination of heavy drinking and smoking and higher rates of absence. The results are discussed in terms of age and sex of the workers, industrial sector (manufacturing, construction and services) and occupation (managers/professionals, intermediate/junior non-manual and manual).
