Background This study explored the relation of level of socio-economic development to the course of non-affective psychosis, by extending the analysis of urban/rural differences in course in Chandigarh, India.
Method The proportion of'best outcome'cases between urban (n=110) and rural (n=50) catchment areas were compared at two-year follow-up, separately for CATEGO S+and non-S+schizophrenia.
Results The proportion of subjects with'best outcome'ratings at the urban and rural sites, respectively was similar for CATEGO S+schizophrenia (29 v. 29%), but significantly different for non-S+psychosis (26 v. 47%). Conclusions The fact that in rural Chandigarh, psychoses have a more favourable course than in the urban area may be explained in large part by psychoses distinct from'nuclear'schizophrenia.
