Mental health statistics: CS83-505/1966E-PDF

trends in hospital care and patient characteristics, 1955-63.

"Statistical analysis is particularly important in the mental health field because many of the illnesses which concern us are difficult to detect and direct observations or measurements are less useful that in other illnesses where physical effects are immediately apparent. Also, statistical methods, supplemented by other techniques, tell us where to look for causes and provide clues as to the results of treatment and preventive programs. Fruitful hypotheses are suggested; these should lead to more refined investigations and more intensive studies at the local and clinical levels."
