Presentation of the graphs

The WORKss Cohort platform displays graphically aggregate annual information on mortality and permanent disability (in absolute values or in terms of incidence rate), both as figures or tables, based on any combination of the variables considered: sex, birth cohort, occupation, and economic activity.

Taking mortality as an example, the annual death count has been made for each combination by sex, birth cohort, occupation, and economic activity. Thus, for example, we can have the number of deaths in 2004, for men, born between 1950 and 1959, with a non-qualified manual occupation, and engaged in an economic service activity.

The generated graph shows, on the y-axis, the information in absolute values or in terms of rate per 10,000 people year either for the permanent disability or for premature mortality and, on the x-axis, the years of the period currently considered.

Thus, if mortality in absolute values is selected and the graph is by cohort, what we see are three lines that will represent mortality, in absolute values, between 2004 and 2015 for each of the three available cohorts (50-59, 60-69 and 70-79).

On the other hand, if permanent disability expressed as a rate is chosen, and the variable sex is selected from the drop-down window, a graph with two lines (one for men and the other for women) will appear with the values of the permanent disability rate.

Finally, a descriptive table is shown at the bottom of the graph that allows the reader to see the distribution of the selected data.
