In Tables 10 the relative risk (see Biostatistical Methods) of one or more absences associated with all diagnoses for specific occupational categories is compared with all other occupational categories in the Rocky Flats work force. This comparison takes into account the possible confounding effects of age and gender. In contrast to the previous series of tables, these analyses examine the risk of a worker having one or more absences of 5 or more consecutive workdays during 1993. This was done to minimize the problem associated with one person having multiple absences for the same condition.

Service workers (RR=1.4) had a slightly, but not statistically significant, increased risk of being absent 5 or more consecutive workdays due to illness or injury. The risk of absence for "other" hourly workers (RR=0.1) was statistically significantly decreased.
