ABSTRACT
The article presents information about a study in Sweden, which analyzes the burden of morbidity in a sick-leave registered population within a primary care setting. The data for the four-week study was obtained from one social insurance office in an area within the Stockholm County and it included identity number, age, sex and diagnoses. It was found that the burden of morbidity for sick-leave certified patients must be considered while measuring epidemiological aspects in primary care.
