S-MGA - The Study on Mental Health at Work

Data source:

The Study on Mental Health at Work (German: Studie Mentale Gesundheit bei der Arbeit - S-MGA) is a nationwide representative study of employees subject to social security contributions which focuses on the relationship between working conditions, mental health and functioning. The study was initiated by the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Medicine (FIOSH) and conducted in cooperation with the Institute for Employment research (IAB) and infas-institute for Applied Social Sciences.

The sampling frame covers all employees from the birth cohorts 1951 to 1980 subject to social security contributions on the reference date of 31 December 2010. A cluster sample was drawn within a two-stage sampling procedure with a stratified selection of regions at the first level followed by a random sample of participants within regions. In total, N=4511 participants were assessed face-to-face in a computer assisted personal interview (CAPI) and with standardized questionnaires.
