The results of research on depression in work
Recent studies of the European Depression Association (EDA) have shown that as many as 10% of workers in European countries take time off work due to depression. This gives a total of more than 21 000 working days absences associated with this disease. A single episode of depression excludes the sick person from work for an average of 36 days.
January 21, 2013 was referred to as the most depressing day of the year. This day, known as Blue Monday, was calculated by a British psychologist Cliff Arnall with the use of a special formula. When constructing a mathematical model, he took into account weather, psychological and economic factors. The level of depression of that day is determined by such factors as low level of sunlight, loans taken for the holidays, the time elapsed since Christmas, and the awareness of not keeping New Year's resolutions.
