  1. On the use of socio-demographic indicators in local health planning : a Canadian non-metropolitan perspective.

    Article, Congrès - En anglais

    International symposium in medical geography. Charlotte NC (USA), 1992/08/04.

    This paper argues that the use of socio-demographic indicators to represent actual or potential demand for mental health services needs to be informed by knowledge of local settlement conditions and trends.

    Following a selective review of the literature on the use of socio-demographic indicators in mental health care planning and on the spatial ecology of mental illness, a case study of a non-metropolitan jurisdiction in southern Ontario, Canada is presented.

    The results of a regression-based analysis reveal a strong association between the socio-demographic composition of populations and hospitalization rates for mental illness.
