BEDOYA-MARRUGO, Elías A.; VARGAS-ORTIZ, Luz E.; SEVERICHE-SIERRA, Carlos A.  and  MEZA-ALEMAN, María de J.. Logit Model for the Presence of Osteomuscular Problems in Workers of the Healthcare Sector. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2019, vol.30, n.2, pp.181-188. ISSN 0718-0764.

The objective of this work is to identify sociodemographic and work conditions associated with musculoskeletal problems in workers in the hospital sector. A Logit Model was used to determine the sociodemographic and labor variables that influence the presence of musculoskeletal problems in a group of 123 workers in the health sector. For the analysis of the results, descriptive statistics were calculated, a Pareto diagram was made, and a Logit model was adjusted. The response variable corresponds to the presence of musculoskeletal problems and mosaic charts were made between the presence of musculoskeletal problems and the variables that were significant in defining the model. The results indicate that the musculoskeletal problems of greater presence are hand problems and bone pain and the Logit Model shows that gender, seniority and the responsibility position influence the presence of musculoskeletal problems.
