This table reports estimated coefficients (βi) of the zero-inflated negative binomial regression transformed to incidence-rate ratios , *** p < 0.01, ** p < 0.05, * p < 0.1, confidence interval at 95% are in parentheses. Model 1 is the baseline specification, while model 2 includes an additional confounding variable, workplace social support. In model 3, covariates representing: individual's health status, number of chronic conditions, having a family doctor, province and occupational fixed effects are included
