Abstract

The study objective was to assess sick-leave among women investigated in ageneral population survey of alcohol dependence/abuse (ADA). A total of 399 women, selected by stratified random sampling, were interviewed and diagnosed according to DSM-III-R. Data on sick-leave were obtained by linkage with the Social Insurance records. The study found that women with ADA but without other psychiatric disorders had an increased number of annual sick-leave spells - 1.82 compared with 1.47 in the reference population whereas the mean duration was similar. Women with ADA and other psychiatric disordershad 2.38 annual spells, but also considerably longer spells (mean 16.54 days vs 9.70). Socio-economic differences were large, with the less privileged groups having both more and longer spells. Stepwise multiple regression showed that both ADA and other psychiatric disorders contributed to high sick-leave incidence and duration, as, to a lesser extent, did low education and low social group (the last variable only affected duration of the spells). The frequency of disability pension/long sickness spells was higher in women with ADA (odds ratio of 2.95). We concluded that there is a strong association between ADA and sick-leave, which increases considerably in the presence of additional psychiatric disorders.
