Abstract

Methodological issues raised by distributional characteristics of absenteeism are significant. 'Scientific' studies of human behaviour and interpreting results of such studies have evolved to higher levels of complexity. Traditional narrative review is susceptible on grounds of prejudice. Modeling human interactions is a demanding problem. Traditional narrative review is susceptible on grounds of subjectivity. This paper reviews literature on absenteeism as a form of withdrawal behaviour apart from turnover. Studies examining psychometric properties of absence measures have been reviewed, along with relationship between absenteeism and personal/attitudinal/organisational variables according to unit of analysis. A number of analyses have summarised relationships of absenteeism with variables like 'personal', 'climatic' and attitudinal determinants. Paper concludes with issues for future research that are of both theoretical and practical concern.

Keywords: Neuroeconomic Actors, Psychometric Properties, Personal/Attitudinal/Organisational Variables and Behavioural Actors
