Schizophrenia in Hawaii: Analysis of Cohort Mortality Risk in a Multi-ethnic Population

  • Betsy Platt Weiner (a1) and Robert C. Marvit (a2)

Extract

Schizophrenic patients in treatment with the Hawaii state system have been followed from 1962 to 1972. This cohort includes 1,689 persons: out-patients as well as in-patients; of Japanese, Caucasian, part-Hawaiian, Filipino, Chinese and other ancestries. After ten years, 60 per cent remain registered with the Hawaii Mental Health Division; 14 per cent are found living in the state; 12 per cent are lost to follow-up; and 14 per cent have died. Mortality is analysed for all causes by comparison with similar ethnic and sex sub-groups of the general population.
