  1. Major depressive disorder in Taiwan defined by the Chinese Diagnostic Interview Schedule.

    Article - En anglais

    The lifetime prevalence rate of major depressive disorder (MDD), as defined by the Chinese Diagnostic Interview Schedule, is 1.14% in Taiwan.

    This is significantly lower than the lifetime prevalence rates reported in Western studies and similar to other studies in the Chinese population using similar methods for assessing cases of MDD.

    Epidemiological data from 136 MDD cases were analyzed to provide possible explanations for this difference in lifetime prevalence rates.

    The low rate of broken families in Chinese culture, low comorbidity rate, and older age of onset of MDD may suggest a reality of low lifetime prevalence rates of MDD in Taiwan.
