NZ Study: Rising Rates of Depression and Work Stress
In the United States and the European Union, 30–40% of workers are exposed to work stress, and these rates appear to have increased since the 1990s (National Institute of Occupational Health and Safety, 1999; European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions, 2005). Stressful work conditions predict poor mental health and there is growing concern that such conditions contribute to the population burden of psychiatric illness. Yet, past research is limited by several methodological shortcomings, which a New Zealand study (2006) aimed to address using data from a birth cohort followed from childhood to adulthood in almost 900 study participants over a 32 year period.
