Abstract

Statistical data on 89 non-resident white women, civil service employees have been presented with the inference that these psychotic workers present a universal problem in industrial medicine that may be expected to become more acute with rising proportion of women workers.It is felt that external influences hasten the onset—more than half the cases being hospitalized in less than six months after employment.With the decline in the quality of prospective employees, closer scrutiny of previous occupational records is indicated and particular emphasis is placed on the history of previous mental disease as a prognostic index
