Overtime Work: Study - Anxiety and Depression

Overtime work was linked to higher anxiety and depression scores among both men and women. University of Bergen, Norway, analyzed data on hours worked by a large sample of Norwegian men and women. Scores for anxiety and depression were compared for 1,350 workers putting in 41 to 100 hours of overtime a week, and some 9,000 workers working regular hours (40 or less) without overtime. The possible depression was increased from about 9% for men working regular hours to 12.5% for those working overtime and in women from 7% to 11% and for both the expected anxiety and depression rates were higher among workers with lower incomes and for less—skilled workers.
