PHE Infographics on cost of worklessness
PHE infographics on cost of worklessness.
Duncan Selbie says:
Having a decent job boosts our wellbeing and quality of life as well as contributing to the economy. The longer a person is out of work, the more likely this is to impact on their health and their family and combined costs from worklessness and sickness absence amount to over 100 billion annually, which certainly makes the case for greater action. PHE has produced infographics on work, worklessness and health for every county and unitary authority in England following the national infographics first published in 2016, which led to requests for more localised data.
