    RE: Influence of combined exposure to perceived risk at work and unstable employment on self-rated health

    Cho et al. investigated the combined effect of exposure to perceived risk at work and unstable employment on self-rated health (1). Among Korean employees, odds ratios (ORs) (95% confidence intervals [CIs]) of perceived risk at work and unstable employment for poor self-rated health were 2.00 (1.80 to 2.22) and 1.18 (1.09 to 1.28), respectively. In addition, OR (95% CI) of both perceived risk at work and unstable employment for poor self-rated health was 3.22 (2.72 to 3.81), and relative excess risk due to interaction (RERI) (95% CI) was 1.03 (0.48 to 1.58). Among European employees, ORs (95% CIs) of perceived risk at work and unstable employment for poor self-rated health were 3.20 (2.93 to 3.49) and 1.04 (0.97 to 1.13), respectively. In addition, OR (95% CI) of both perceived risk at work and unstable employment for poor self-rated health was 3.41 (2.93 to 3.98), and RERI (95% CI) was 0.18 (-0.36 to 0.71).There was a supra-additive interaction between perceived risk at work and unstable employment on poor self-rated health among Korean employees, and I have a query about data among Korean employees.

    Kim et al. reported that odds ratio of precarious employment for poor health was marginally significant, by adjusting socio-demographic covariates, job satisfaction, job insecurity, and monthly wage (2). Kwon et al. also evaluated the association between employment status and self-rated health (3). The percentage of non-permanent workers was 20.8 %, and OR of non-perma...
