Abstract : While the sick leave patterns of the executives (GS-15 and above) appear to be influenced in some unique ways that do not apply at lower grades, and so do not correlate with the agency difference trends, they make up only a small proportion of the total population and therefore do not substantially affect the overall indications. Agencies do show consistent differences in relative use of sick leave by their employees that largely cut across differences in characteristics of these employees. Agencies that are HI in use of sick leave on year tend to be HI the next; agencies that are LO stay LO. If their men use sick leave, a lot or a little, their women do too. The same quite consistently obtains also when the population is categorized by age, grades below 15, and Washington or Field locations. (Author)
