Abstract

Among employed adults aged ≥18 years, women (43.5%) were more likely than men (37.0%) to have missed at least 1 day of work because of illness or injury during the past 12 months. This pattern was consistent for women and men aged 18–44 (44.5% versus 39.4%), 45–64 (44.5% versus 36.3%), and ≥65 years (29.3% versus 21.6%). Among women, having any work-loss days was similar for those aged 18–44 and 45–64 years and then declined for those aged ≥65 years. Among men, having any work-loss days decreased with age.
