Health of Mature Age Workers

A snapshot released today presents data on the health of older workers in Australia.

Analysing data from the 2004-05 National Health Survey, the report found that mature age workers (between 45-74 years) were slightly healthier than their non-working counterparts, with 8 in 10 workers having a chronic health condition such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes or obesity, compared with 9 in 10 of the non-working population.

See Health of Mature Age Workers in Australia: a Snapshot, 2004-05 (cat. no. 4837.0.55.001).
