  1. The Netherlands Mental Health Survey and Incidence Study (NEMESIS) : objectives and design.

    Article - En anglais

    The article describes the objectives and design of a prospective study of the prevalence, incidence and course of psychiatric disorders in a representative sample of non-institutionalized Dutch adults.

    A total of 7146 men and women aged 18-64, contacted through a multistage sample of municipalities and households, were interviewed at home in 1996.

    The primary diagnostic instrument was the CIDI, which determines the lifetime occurrence of DSM-III-R disorders.

    The disorders included were : mood disorders, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, schizophrenia and other non-affective psychotic disorders, and dependence and abuse of psychoactive substances.

    Follow-up measurements in the same sample were scheduled at 12 and 36 months.

    The net response to the first measurement was 69.7%. Poststratification weightings were applied for gender, age, marital status and degree of urbanization.

    Limitations and advantages of the study design are discussed.

    Findings are reported elsewhere in this issue.
