A few figures

Belgium (2015)
One in ten women working in the distribution, care or education sectors suffers from long-term illness, often psychological disorders related to the pressures of combining work and family.
166,162 men (45%) and 204,246 women (55%) were suffering from long-term illness, which is a 22% increase over five years.
These people are mainly suffering from burnout, depression and back pain.
Belga Press Agency 11/08/2016
12.6% of the French working population will be vulnerable to burnout (3,2 million employees and self-employed workers).
Among those most at risk are farmers (24%); self-employed workers (20%) including craftspeople, shopkeepers and company bosses; executives (19%); employees (10%), labourers (7%).
Technologia Survey August 2013
Switzerland (2014)
2 million of the 4.9 million workers report a more or less significant burnout.
This overwork costs the Swiss economy some 5.6 billion francs annually.
Resources, the respect and support of superiors and even room for manoeuvre are just some of the protective factors.
