Working life and public health

A person's state of health depends both on their work and their life outside of work.

Working conditions also affect a person's opportunities and limitations outside of work, and the general health and lifestyle of an individual have a strong influence on their situation in working life.

In 2011, questionnaires and interviews were used to begin work on a study of the relations between structural transformations within the labour market in Gävleborg and the working population's financial status as well as that population's mental and physical health.
