THE EPIDEMIOLOGY OF SCHIZOPHRENIA pdf free download. We want to understand the distribution of schizophrenic disorders in human populations and the factors that contribute to high and low rates, because without such understanding we cannot plan treatment programs or appraise our efforts at prevention. Behind every action program for any
disorder there lies a picture of the condition’s epidemiology; sometimes this picture is firmly based on established facts, but more often it is inferred from limited data mixed with general theoretical preconceptions. The uses of epidemiological knowledge are grouped under seven conventional headings: (1) historical trends, (2) community diagnosis, (3) individual risk, (4) beyond the clinical horizon, (5) identification of syndromes, (6) working of the health services, and (7) the search for causes.
