Absence from work

The aim of the absence statistics is to measure the scope of the absence distributed on sectors, occupation, sex, industries, and others. The statistics are in this way tools used in estimating and comparing the level of absence within the different industries and groups of employees, and can be a foundation on which economic and political decisions are made.
