  • Description:
    During 1968 illness or injury caused anestimated 412.6 million days lost from work, or 5.4 days per member of the currently employed population. Current employment is defined as working at any time during the 2-week period prior to the week of the household interview conducted for the Health Interview Survey (HIS) or having a job or business during that period. In 1968 the currently employed population was an estimated average of 75,931,OOO persons over the 52 weeks of inter-viewing. A companion report in Series 10 for 1968 data presents data on days of restricted activity, bed disability, and days lost from school (children aged 6-16 years) among the civilian population not residents in institutions (Series 10, No. 67). The number of days lost from work among the currently employed population and rate per person has been presented in earlier "Disability Days" reports (Series 10, Nos. 4, 24, and 47) as well as in each of the "Current Estimates from the Health Interview Survey" reports (Series 10, Nos. 5, 13, 25, 37, 43, 52, and 60)
