1 Trends in psychosocial working conditions : Evidence of narrowing inequalities? Anthony LaMontagne, Lauren Krnjacki, Anne Kavanagh & Rebecca Bentley Centre for Women s Health, Gender & Society Melbourne School of Population Health

2 Background Work environments: Important determinant of health Strong social gradient persists Health inequalities Focus: Psychosocial work environment

3 Background Psychosocial working conditions: Job stressors: Lack of job control High demands Insecurity Effort-reward imbalance Validated job stress indicators are associated with physical and mental health Prevalent and potentially ti modifiable determinants t of health

4 Background Working conditions vary across place and contexts However, consistent inequalities between sub-groups of population Poor conditions for lower skilled & casuals Gender differences Age differences

5 Monitoring working conditions Indicators used in government and other surveillance systems internationally Could be an efficient way to identify at risk groups or occupations Can guide policy and practice interventions Has potential to improve working conditions, and reduce job related stress

6 Monitoring Relatively little published on trends at population level Canada ( ) Little change in stressors Increase in security Denmark (1990, 1995, 2000) Increase in job control Increase in security What about trends in inequalities?

7 Research Questions Are there inequalities in job control & job security by: Sex Age Occupational skill level Employment arrangements? Is there any change over time? Why are there inequalities by age and sex?

8 Methods

9 Data Waves 1 to 8 Employed responding persons yrs Survey items contained in self-completion questionnaire Control five items Security two items All scored from strongly agree (1) to strongly disagree (7)

10 Control Two equally weighted sub-scales: Skill discretion My job often requires me to learn new skills I use many of my skills and abilities in my current job Decision authority I have lots of freedom to decide how I do my work I have a lot of say about what happens in my job I have a lot of freedom to decide when I do my job Overall internal consistency: Cronbach s Alpha = 0.40

11 Security One scale from two items I worry about the future of my job I have a secure future in my job Items combined with equal weighting Cronbach s alpha = 0.60

12 Predictors Sex (male / female) Age groups (ten year groups) Occupational skill level Five categories Based on ASCO: Skill level & skill specialization Employment arrangements Contract arrangements & work schedule Five categories (Perm FT, Perm PT, Casual & labour/ hire, fixed term, self employed)

13 Analysis Observed trends Differences between population groups over time Weighted to the Australian population using cross-sectional responding person weights from HILDA Differences changing over time Fitted interaction between exposures and time Unadjusted population averaged models Compare log likelihood for models with and without interaction term

14 Analysis Understanding differences To examine if differences by age and sex were explained by differences in types of jobs Occupational skill level l and employment arrangement fitted as co-variates Predicted values derived from population averaged longitudinal linear Predicted values derived from population averaged longitudinal linear regression

15 Results

16 Results 7,588 employed persons at baseline Including those who joined in subsequent years: Control: 55,689 observations (n = 12,324) Security: 55,736 observations (n = 13,229)

19 Job Control

20 Observed trends Observed differences in job control by: Gender Age Occupational skill level Employment arrangement Are these differences changing over time?

21 Job control and gender Observed trends

22 Job control and age Observed trends

23 Job control and occupational skill level Observed trends

24 Job control and employment arrangements Observed trends

25 Summary of observed trends: Job control Inequalities by sex, age, skill level and employment arrangement Some small fluctuations Possible improvements for youngest age Casuals and fixed terms Inequalities persisted over time

26 Job control (adjusted) To what extent are inequalities in sex and age explained by: Occupational skill level Employment arrangement

27 Age and emp and occ MELBOURNE SCHOOL OF POPULATION HEALTH Sex and occupational skill level Males Females Percent Highest skilled High Mid Middle Mid Low Lowest skilled Employment arrangement

28 Sex and employment arrangements Males 40 Females Percent Perm FT Perm PT Casual and LH Fixed Term Self Employed Employment arrangement

35 Summary of job control findings Differences by sex, age, skill level and employment arrangement Persisted over time Age and sex differences attenuated when controlling for skill level and work arrangement

36 Job Security

48 Summary: Job security findings Overall job security showed a small increase from , drop in 2008 (GFC?) Persisting differences by sex, age, skill level and work arrangement In contrast to control, age and sex differences not g attenuated when controlling for skill level and employment arrangements

49 Main Findings & Implications

50 Main findings and implications: Job control Inequalities persist over time for all groups Small fluctuations but need further monitoring Gender differences Mostly explained by composition of the workforce Social policy issue Some persisting disparity within same jobs

51 Main findings and implications: Job control Age differences Mostly explained by composition of the workforce Still young people lowest control Mixed group: who does it matter for? Mental illness early in life due to work stress Intervention to improve job control in low skilled and precarious employment may decrease inequalities Further interventions may be needed directly for women and younger aged

52 Main findings and implications: Job security Differences between groups over time persist Sex differences not attenuated once adjusted Men perceive security to be lower at given occupational skill and employment arrangements? Possibly equally insecure but in different industries? Nurses / teachers vs. Seasonal workers / labourers? Gendered importance of work Different roles in household?

53 Main findings and implications: Job security Age differences not attenuated once adjusted Different perception of security different aged groups Lowest were and year olds Address job security by lowest skill level employees and precarious employment arrangements

54 Implications for policy and practice Strategies are available to improve conditions Organizational or structural approaches: Control Increasing participation of employees in decision making Participatory staff meetings Opportunity for reduced or flexible work hours Security Assist individual to deal with precarious employment

55 Strengths and Limitations Limited measures: No demand d measure (balance with control) Low reliability of measures Job security measure used here associated with mental health Control measure lower internal consistency (0.4) However shown to predict SF-36 mental health outcomes

56 Strengths and Limitations Longitudinal survey: Detailed picture of time trends within and between person Changes in working conditions due to changes in labour force composition not efficiently captured here ABS data indicated proportion of permanent to precarious has not changed overt time Repeat cross sectional and longitudinal data ideal Sample less representative due to attrition biased to high h SES groups

57 Summary Persisting inequalities in job control and job security Lower skilled occupations and casuals Gender differences Age differences Small fluctuations needs continued monitoring Age and sex differences in job control could be addressed through adjustments in the composition of the workforce Addressing inequalities could help to reduce health inequalities
