Abstract:
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.
