OBJECTIVES The aims of this study were to examine (i) the association of relative weight with subsequent disability retirement due to any diagnosis and also in two major diagnostic groups (ie, musculoskeletal diseases and mental disorders) and (ii) whether diagnosed diseases, physical and mental functioning, and working conditions explain these associations. METHODS This prospective study comprised a cohort of 6542 middle-aged employees of the City of Helsinki, Finland. Questionnaire data… Expand
Economic difficulties and subsequent disability retirement
TLDR
Economic difficulties are independently associated with disability retirement and should be considered in attempts to tackle early exit from the labour market due to disability. Expand
Joint associations of smoking and physical activity with disability retirement: a register-linked cohort study
TLDR
Vigorous physical activity might help prevent disability retirement not only among never-smokers, but even among ex-smoker and moderate smokers, however, among heavy smokers, physical activity is not sufficient to eliminate the adverse effects of smoking on health and work ability. Expand
Joint Association of Overweight and Common Mental Disorders With Diagnosis-Specific Disability Retirement: A Follow-Up Study Among Female and Male Employees
TLDR
Overweight was associated with disability retirement due to any and musculoskeletal diagnoses and CMD with any and mental diagnoses and the risk for disability retirement was additively higher for those with both overweight and C MD. Expand
A prospective cohort study of disability pension due to mental diagnoses: the importance of health factors and behaviors
TLDR
Poor or moderate SRH, under- or overweight, former tobacco use or being an abstainer from alcohol seem to be strong direct predictors of DP due to mental diagnoses, independently of several confounders of this study, including familial factors. Expand
Stability and change of body mass index as a predictor of disability pension
TLDR
BMI is an early predictor of general DP and also of DP due to MSD and may possibly have a direct effect on the risk of DP, according to the independency of various covariates. Expand
Body mass index and the risk of disability retirement: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
The association between excess body mass and all-cause disability retirement did not differ between men and women and was independent of selection bias, performance bias, confounding and adjustment for publication bias. Expand
Occupational class and working beyond the retirement age: a cohort study.
TLDR
Employees with higher occupational classes are two times more likely to continue working beyond the retirement age compared to those with lower occupational classes. Expand
Influence of obesity and physical workload on disability benefits among construction workers followed up for 37 years
TLDR
Obesity and a high physical workload are synergistic risk factors for labour force exit via disability benefit through MSD. Expand
Does increasing physical activity reduce the excess risk of work disability among overweight individuals?
TLDR
Findings suggest that the excess risk of work disability among overweight individuals would drop by 3-4% if they increased their average physical activity to the average level of normal-weight people. Expand
Work Participation Among the Morbidly Obese Seeking Bariatric Surgery: An Exploratory Study from Norway
TLDR
The proportion of the work participation and disability pension among this morbidly obese population is of substantial concern, as work participation has proven important for the health-related quality of life. Expand

Risk of disability and mortality due to overweight in a Finnish population.
TLDR
Though modest overweight has little impact on mortality it predicts severe functional impairment and a considerable proportion of work disability pensions could probably be prevented by efficient weight control. Expand
Association between obesity status in young adulthood and disability pension
TLDR
The risks in overweight and obese, but not underweight, subjects were significantly elevated for each cause investigated, and productivity losses associated with adverse BMI in young adulthood appear to be large. Expand
Disability pension, employment and obesity status: a systematic review
TLDR
BMI was significantly associated with disability pension, but the direction of causality may vary with underlying cause, and interventions had positive productivity effects in the morbidly obese, but whether this holds for the overweight remains to be proven. Expand
Obesity in young adulthood and later disability pension: A population-based cohort study of 366,929 Swedish men
TLDR
Obese men in Sweden are at higher risk of receiving disability pension and the relationship between BMI and disability pension is J-shaped, an important future task is to estimate the societal costs due to disability pension of obese people. Expand
Working conditions as risk factors for disability retirement: a longitudinal register linkage study
TLDR
Among various working conditions, those that are physically demanding and those that imply low job control are potential risk factors for disability retirement. Expand
Obesity status and sick leave: a systematic review
TLDR
Increasing obesity in children and adults is likely to negatively affect future productivity as obesity increases the risk of sick leave, disability pension and death. Expand

Body size and risk of MS in two cohorts of US women
TLDR
Obese adolescents have an increased risk of developing multiple sclerosis (MS), and this result suggests that prevention of adolescent obesity may contribute to reduced MS risk. Expand
Direct and indirect effects of obesity on U.S. labor market outcomes of older working age adults.
TLDR
This paper uses data from the US Health and Retirement Study on older adults who were no more than 64 years of age in 2002 to estimate a model in which employment outcome in 2002 is a function of weight status in 1992 and finds that obesity class 2 and 3 increases both the probability of taking an early retirement and the incidence of disability.

The relationship between lifestyle, working environment, socio-demographic factors and expulsion from the labour market due to disability pension among nurses.
TLDR
The relationship between lifestyle, working environment, socio-demographic factors and disability pension (DP) among nurses is influenced by a number of factors, including nurses who have poor working environments and/or unhealthy lifestyles have higher risks of becoming disability pensioners.
