No one enjoys being seriously ill or simply feeling unwell. But we all experience periods of illness during the course of our lives, and some unfortunate souls deal with chronic diseases daily. Illness impacts every area of our lives and can prohibit us from fully participating in the things we love or attending work.
In fact, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 7.8 million workers had an illness-related work absence in January 2022. Furthermore, about 4.2 million of the 129.7 million workers who usually worked full-time, or 3.3 percent, worked part-time because of an illness, injury, medical problem, or medical appointment in January 2022. This is the second-highest percentage since data were first collected in June 1976. The highest rate was in January 1978, at 3.4 percent. So, not only does illness effect our lives and bodies, but when it comes to working, absences due to illness also effect production and the economy. There's really not much good in being ill other than getting well.
The 10 Most Common Health Conditions in the United States
Six out of every ten adults have a chronic disease, and four out of ten have two or more. Here's the top ten:
Chronic Respiratory Diseases like asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema
Influenza and Pneumonia
Mental Health Conditions
Any one of these diseases, a cold, strep throat, COVID-19, or even a migraine headache, can make you feel miserable for days. And if too many are absent simultaneously, threatens a company's production.
