RR168 - Occupation and mental health: Secondary analyses of the ONS Psychiatric Morbidity Survey of Great Britain
There is increasing concern about the effects of the
psychosocial work environment on mental health. One approach to
examining work and mental health is to compare rates of common
mental disorder between occupations. This report describes a
secondary analysis of the Second Survey of Psychiatric Morbidity
among adults living in private households in Britain linking
occupation to psychological morbidity. Occupation measured by
Standard Occupational Classification, as major, sub major, minor
and constituent unit groups was linked to common mental disorder
measured by the revised version of the Clinical Interview Schedule,
to self reported sickness absence data, illicit drug use,
psychotropic drug use and use of health services.
