“This article is based on results from the 2002 Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS), cycle 1.2: Mental Health and Well-being, and the 1994/1995 to 2002/2003 National Population Health Surveys (NPHS). The prevalence of a major depressive episode among employed Canadians aged 25 to 64 is first studied according to selected job, health and sociodemographic characteristics. The impact of depression on work impairment is then assessed via associations with reduced work activities, mental health disability days and work absences, using multivariate logistic regression models.”
