Introduction Few studies have examined the characteristics of people with psychiatric disorders who work excessive hours compared to those with other health conditions, or compared to others with no health conditions or disabilities. Methods We conducted a secondary analysis of data files provided by the Australian Bureau of Statistics from a 2003 population survey (N = 23,851 in scope). We investigated candidate correlates of working excessive hours as the main dependent variable. Results Although, people with psychiatric disorders were less likely overall than healthy adults to work excessive hours, partnered males with dependant children, and males with higher educational attainment; were at greatest risk of working 49 or more hours per week. Conclusions People with psychiatric disorders have a substantial risk of over working, and this should be considered in their long term treatment and care.
