According to research published in the Journal of Addiction Research and Therapy, approximately 5–10 percent of the population has a work addiction. Many factors may make an individual more likely to have a work addiction, including their level of education. Approximately 8–17 percent of people with a college education have a work addiction.

If you think you or someone you know exhibits signs and symptoms of work addiction, take a work addiction quiz. While these assessments cannot serve as an official diagnosis, they can be used to evaluate your symptoms and help you better understand the likelihood that you or someone you know has a work addiction.
