Health and economic indicators

This chart presents the dynamics of various health and economic indicators across a range of European countries. All figures are Eurostat data.

Fit for Work is an initiative based on groundbreaking studies, conducted across more than 30 countries in Europe and beyond, which examined the impact of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) on an individual's ability to work and, therefore, the impact on economies and society as a whole. We found that just as a poor economy impacts individuals' health and wellbeing, long-term illness among the workforce negatively affects the financial health of the country.
