Edipemiology of depression in primary care : Developing guidelines for treating depressive disorders in the primary care setting.
Major depressive disorder has been recently found to be associated with high medical utilization and more functional impairment than most chronic medical illnesses.
Major depression is a common illness among persons in the community, in ambulatory medical clinics, and in inpatient medical care.
Studies have estimated that major depression occurs in 2R%-4% of persons in the community, in 5%-10% of primary care patients, and 10-14% of medical inpatients.
In each setting there are two to three times as many persons with depressive symptoms that fall short of major depression criteria.
