New data from Roy Morgan Research shows that employees who rate their job security as "very poor" are over 50 per cent more likely than those with a "very good" sense of job security to suffer anxiety, stress or depression. A study from 2013 to 2015 of over 20,000 Australians aged 14+ about their employment found that 33 per cent report suffering anxiety, stress, and/or depression within the past 12 months. Some 30 per cent of employees with "very good" or "good" job security suffered from one or more of these conditions, compared with 35 per cent of those who rated security as "fair", 41 per cent of those who rated it as "poor" and 46 per cent of employees with "very poor" job security.
