This one year prospective multicentre study was designed to determine the incidence of community-acquired pneumonia in adults.
It was carried out in primary health care centres and three reference hospitals, located in the « Maresme » region (Barcelona, Spain) serving a population of 39,733 subjects over 13 years of age.
Patients suspected of having contracted community-acquired pneumonia were visited by their family doctors and referred to the three reference hospitals for confirmation of the diagnosis.
Patients attending the emergency services of these hospitals were also included.
