Lifetime prevalence and age-of-onset distributions of DSM-IV disorders in the National Comorbidity Survey Replication.
TLDR
Lifetime prevalence estimates are higher in recent cohorts than in earlier cohorts and have fairly stable intercohort differences across the life course that vary in substantively plausible ways among sociodemographic subgroups.
The epidemiology of major depressive disorder: results from the National Comorbidity Survey Replication (NCS-R).
TLDR
Notably, major depressive disorder is a common disorder, widely distributed in the population, and usually associated with substantial symptom severity and role impairment, and while the recent increase in treatment is encouraging, inadequate treatment is a serious concern.
The economic burden of depression in the United States: how did it change between 1990 and 2000?
TLDR
The economic burden of depression remained relatively stable between 1990 and 2000, despite a dramatic increase in the proportion of depression sufferers who received treatment.
The US National Comorbidity Survey Replication (NCS‐R): design and field procedures
TLDR
The main features of the NCS‐R design and field procedures are described, including information on fieldwork organization and procedures, sample design, weighting and considerations in the use of design‐based versus model‐based estimation.
Childhood adversities and adult psychiatric disorders in the national comorbidity survey replication I: associations with first onset of DSM-IV disorders.
TLDR
Examination of joint associations of 12 retrospectively reported CAs with the first onset of DSM-IV disorders in the National Comorbidity Survey Replication suggests that CAs have powerful and often subadditive associations with the onset of many types of largely primary mental disorders throughout the life course.
Sample designs and sampling methods for the Collaborative Psychiatric Epidemiology Studies (CPES)
TLDR
How the expected survey cost and error structure for each of these surveys influenced the original design of the samples and how actual field experience led to changes and adaptations to arrive at the final samples of each survey population are described.
Lifetime prevalence and age-of-onset distributions of mental disorders in the World Health Organization's World Mental Health Survey Initiative.
TLDR
As many mental disorders begin in childhood or adolescents, interventions aimed at early detection and treatment might help reduce the persistence or severity of primary disorders and prevent the subsequent onset of secondary disorders.
The World Health Organization Health and Work Performance Questionnaire (HPQ)
TLDR
The HPQ is described as a self-report instrument designed to estimate the workplace costs of health problems in terms of reduced job performance, sickness absence, and work-related accidents-injuries.
The epidemiology of major depressive episodes: results from the International Consortium of Psychiatric Epidemiology (ICPE) surveys
TLDR
Community epidemiological surveys using the World Health Organization Composite International Diagnostic Interview administered face‐to‐face were carried out in 10 countries in North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia.
