  Early MDA (n = 91) Late MDA (n = 73) Never MDA (n = 86)
Employable age 74 (81) 64 (88) 69 (80)
Employed 64 (87) 48 (76) 41 (60)
Working hours per week 36 (33–39) 35 (31–38) 32 (28–37)

Short-term absence 10 (16) 5 (11) 6 (18)
Productivity loss at work 17 (27) 14 (30) 24 (71)
Hours per week productivity loss at work in patients with productivity loss 6.7 (4–10.5) 7.6 (4.8–16.8) 7.9 (4.5–18.9)
Total productivity at work 32 (29–35) 29 (25–34) 19 (14–25)
  1. Results shown as mean (95% confidence interval) or n (%) unless otherwise indicated. Early MDA MDA within 3 months, Late MDA MDA between 3 and 12, Never MDA no MDA within first year, IQR interquartile range. Total productivity = hours per week - absence - productivity loss at work, calculated in mean per week over past 4 weeks
