Young workers are more likely to call in sick due to stress compared to older workers, according to a new report by British financial company Friends Life [The Telegraph].

In a survey of 2,000 full-time workers, researchers found that 7 in 10 workers ages 18 to 24 called in sick because of stress. They also found that calling in sick due to stress decreased as age increased:

  • 67% of 18-24 year olds
  • 54% of 25-34 year olds
  • 47% of 35-44 year olds
  • 43% of 45-54 year olds
