BackgroundUrbanicity is a risk factor for schizophrenia, but it is unclear whether this risk is homogenous across urban areas.AimsTo determine whether the incidence of psychotic disorders varied within an urban area, beyond variation attributable to individual-level characteristics.MethodsAll incident cases of ICD-10 psychoses from a large, 2-year, epidemiological study of first-episode psychoses in Southeast London were identified. Incidence rates for 33 wards were standardised for age, sex… Expand
Small area-level variation in the incidence of psychotic disorders in an urban area in France: an ecological study
TLDR
Incidence of broad psychotic disorders shows spatial patterning with the best fit for models that included both strong autocorrelation between neighbouring areas and weak autocarrelation between areas further apart, and at ecological level, the variation in the number of cases and the factors that influence this variation are different for non-affective and affective psychotic disorders. Expand
Social Deprivation, Inequality, and the Neighborhood-Level Incidence of Psychotic Syndromes in East London
TLDR
It is suggested that both absolute and relative measures of neighborhood social composition are associated with the incidence of nonaffective psychosis, and these associations are consistent with a role for social stressors in psychosis risk, particularly when people live in more unequal communities. Expand
Neighbourhood characteristics and the incidence of first-episode psychosis and duration of untreated psychosis
TLDR
The incidence of psychotic disorders is related to neighbourhood factors and it may be useful to consider neighbourhood factors when allocating resources for early intervention services. Expand
Neighbourhood-level effects on psychoses: re-examining the role of context
TLDR
SERFs at individual and neighbourhood levels were implicated in the aetiology of psychosis, but it was unable to determine whether these associations were causal. Expand
Individuals, schools, and neighborhood: a multilevel longitudinal study of variation in incidence of psychotic disorders.
TLDR
The association between urbanicity and psychosis appears to be a reflection of increased social fragmentation present within cities, which is consistent with a hypothesis that certain characteristics that define individuals as being different from most other people in their local environment may increase risk of psychosis. Expand
Urbanicity, social adversity and psychosis
TLDR
It is unlikely that social drift alone can fully account for geographical variation in incidence of schizophrenia, and evidence suggests the impact of adverse social contexts – indexed by area‐level exposures such as population density, social fragmentation and deprivation – on risk of psychosis is explained. Expand
Ethnic density, urbanicity and psychosis risk for migrant groups – A population cohort study
TLDR
It is shown that lower ethnic density is associated with increased incidence of non-affective psychosis for different migrant groups; masking urban/rural differences in psychosis for some groups. Expand
Ethnic isolation and psychosis: re-examining the ethnic density effect
TLDR
Ethnic density is inversely related to psychosis incidence at a detailed local neighbourhood level and at ward level this association was much weaker and no longer statistically significant. Expand
Neighbourhood level social deprivation and the risk of psychotic disorders: a systematic review
TLDR
Research conducted to date has not definitively identified whether the association between social deprivation and the incidence or risk for psychotic disorders is a result of social causation or social drift; however, the findings do have significant implications for service provision, such as the location and access of services. Expand
Social disorganization of neighborhoods and incidence of psychotic disorders: a 7-year first-contact incidence study
TLDR
The findings suggest that the risk for developing a psychotic disorder is higher for people living in socially disorganized environments. Expand

Neighbourhood variation in incidence of schizophrenia
TLDR
The neighbourhood environment modifies the individual risk for schizophrenia, and Premorbid vulnerability resulting in single marital status may be more likely to progress to overt disease in an environment with a higher perceived level of social isolation. Expand
Urbanicity during upbringing and bipolar affective disorders in Denmark.
TLDR
No evidence of a dose-response relationship between urbanicity at birth (and during upbringing) and the risk of bipolar affective disorders in Denmark is found, but there is some evidence that the diagnostic practices used in Aarhus differed from the rest of Denmark. Expand
Schizophrenia, schizoaffective and bipolar disorder within an epidemiologically complete, homogeneous population in rural Ireland: small area variation in rate
TLDR
Improved methodology indicates, using improved methodology, that what is often interpreted as an invariant overall rate of schizophrenia across countries and cultures may not apply to spatial microstructure; macroscopic rates can obscure small area variations when ethnic and socioeconomic diversity are minimised and effects of urbanicity are absent. Expand
Heterogeneity in incidence rates of schizophrenia and other psychotic syndromes: findings from the 3-center AeSOP study.
TLDR
There is significant and independent variation of incidence of schizophrenia and other psychoses in terms of sex, age, ethnicity, and place, which confirms that environmental effects at the individual, and perhaps neighborhood level, may interact together and with genetic factors in the etiology of psychosis.

Incidence of schizophrenia in ethnic minorities in London: ecological study into interactions with environment
TLDR
The incidence of schizophrenia in non-white ethnic minorities in London is greater when they comprise a smaller proportion of the local population, as the proportion of such minorities in theLocal population fell. Expand
Schizophrenia and city life
TLDR
Undetermined environmental factors found in cities increase the risk of schizophrenia, and this finding cannot be explained by the widely held notion that people with schizophrenia drift into cities at the beginning of their illness. Expand
Geographic variation in the prevalence of common mental disorders in Britain: a multilevel investigation.
TLDR
Findings suggest that future interventions should target persons and households rather than places, and further research is first required to establish whether other (particularly smaller) areas lead to similar results. Expand
Urbanisation and incidence of psychosis and depression
TLDR
A high level of urbanisation is associated with increased risk of psychosis and depression for both women and men. Expand
Regional variation in the incidence of schizophrenia in Finland: a study of birth cohorts born from 1950 to 1969
TLDR
Urban birth is a risk factor for schizophrenia in Finland in cohorts born since 1955, and genuine spatial clustering of schizophrenia in eastern Finland was also observed, possibly caused by genetic isolation. Expand
Individual and familial risk factors for bipolar affective disorders in Denmark.
TLDR
Most of the risk factors included in this study that previously have been associated with schizophrenia were not associated with bipolar affective disorder, supporting that the 2 disorders may be at least partially separate etiological entities. Expand
