Blog #5: Questioning the CDC: “lost productivity” in the workplace

1. The author, Plumer, dissects a report from the CDC about where American’s productivity is being lost and due to what. I like that Plumer points out that how the CDC came to these numbers may be an exaggeration.
2. The article’s data is from another articles analysis of a CDC report on lost productivity in the workplace. It looks like the data was collected in a survey – though we don’t know exactly who and how they phrased the questions.
3. Why is it hard to determine where productivity becomes “lost”? Would there be anyway to determine more accurate results?
