We analyzed data from the fifth European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS) to explore the role of personal, occupational, and social risk factors in determining the national prevalence of musculoskeletal pain.

Individual-level risk factors studied included: sex; age; educational level; socioeconomic status; housework or cooking; gardening and repairs;...
International variation in absence from work attributed to musculoskeletal illness: findings from the CUPID study
Objectives To quantify the variation in rates of absence due to musculoskeletal pain across 47 occupational groups (mostly nurses and office workers) from 18 countries, and to explore personal and group-level risk factors that might explain observed differences. Methods A standardised questionnaire was used to obtain information about musculoskeletal pain, sickness absence and possible risk factors in a cross-sectional survey of 12 416 workers (92–1017 per occupational group). Additionally, group-level data on socioeconomic variables, such as sick pay and unemployment rates, were assembled...

Results : Statistically elevated risks were observed for arthritis and back problems for both WRIs and RSIs among both men...
