## Absenteeism by gender

Measures the absenteeism rate by gender categories.

Calculation steps:

1. choose time frame
2. identify the total number of working days for employees in each gender category
3. identify the number of days lost due to the phenomenon of absenteeism for employees in each gender category (medical leave, unmotivated absences, etc.).
4. divide the number of days lost due to absenteeism by the total number of working days available.
5. express the value as a percentage

Example:

Time frame: 1st of July to 31st of July

Working days in time frame: 23 days

No. of employees in time frame: 100 out of which

1. 30 are females
2. 70 are male

No. of days lost by employees: 50

1. 20 are lost by females
2. 30 are lost by males

Total no. of working days in time frame for female population: 30 x 23 = 690

Female absenteeism rate = (20 / 690) x 100 = 0.028 x 100 = 2.8%

Total no. of working days in time frame for male population: 70 x 23 = 1610

Male absenteeism rate = (30 / 1610) x 100 = 0.018 x 100 = 1.8%

Note:

﻿If the number of employees in the time frame fluctuates due to employees leaving or joining the company you should calculate and use in the formula the average number of employees within the time frame.

Average no. of employees = (no. of employees at the start of the time frame + no. of employees at the end of the time frame)/2
