Abstract

Many investigators have noted the large differences that have persisted over the years between the rates of first admissions to the mental hospitals of England and Wales and those of the U. S. for affective disorders, schizophrenia, and psychosis with cerebral arteriosclerosis. The author describes the background and complexity of the problem and the efforts leading up to the present research project, aimed at explaining the differences.
