Sociodemographic differences between rural and urban clients with severe mental illness (SMI) are explored using approaches which extend research in this area beyond limitations found in the few existing studies.
Sixteen hundred adult clients from 18 Wisconsin counties are classified according to the degree of rurality of their counties of residence, using two definitions : a dichotomous metropolitan-non-metropolitan grouping and population density.
There are significant differences between rural and urban clients for age, gender, and marital status, but not education or income.
Young (18-35 years), unmarried males are more likely to live in more densely populated counties.
Older (65 and older) women who are currently or previously married are more likely to live in less densely populated counties.
