Abstract [en]

The aim of the study is to construct a measure of long-term health and investigate its relationship to self-rated health and symptoms. The study group consisted of a large representative sample in full-time paid employment in the age range 20-65. The long term health measure consisted of two item concerning days sickness absence and occasions of sickness presenteeism. When the combined measure was compared with the simple measure of sickness absence with respect to variation in self rated health and complaints it differentiated better. This is a reason for incorporating the presenteeism variable into a measure of long-term good health.
