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.
