Methodology note on Northern Ireland's estimated work related health statistics

Date published: 12 March 2018

HSENI has undertaken an exercise to produce estimated Northern Ireland work related ill health statistics. The attached paper outlines the methodology used in the process, both in terms of Northern Ireland specific data and that extrapolated data from GB. 

While a number of assumptions have been made in carrying out this exercise, and are noted in the methodology, the information is provided to illustrate the estimated extent of the impact that poor work related ill health can have on individuals, employers, the economy and on society in general.
