Auther : By: Adam Ghazi Al-Otaibi

This study tries to test the effect of personal characteristics such as: Age Marital Status, Number of Children, Educational Level and Tenure on absenteeism among male and female employees.

The sample is made up of four hundred and twenty employees: 210 males and 210 females, from the government organizations within the Kuwait Civil Service. The results of the study may be summarized as follows:

  • There were negative correlations between age, tenure and absenteeism among male employees.

  • There were positive correlations between age, marital status, number of children, educational level and absenteeism among female employees.

  • Job tenure was the most significant predictor of absenteeism among male employees, while marital status and education level were the most significant among female employees.

  • There were no significant differences between married and unmarried males on absenteeism.

  • There were no significant differences between males with a number of children and their counterparts without children, on absenteeism.

  • The married females have higher scores on absenteeism than unmarried ones.

  • The females with a number children have higher scores on absenteeism than their counterparts without children.
