  1. A study of hospital admissions over time, using longitudinal latent structure analysis.

    Article - En anglais

    The aim was to study patterns of utilization of non-psychiatric admissions over time and factors affecting the utilization.

    The study cohort includes all individuals born 1934-66, living in one of two Danish municipalities and admitted to a non-psychiatric department at least once in 1977 (n=2 686).

    The hospitalizations of the cohort were followed during a 5-year period by means of the Danish National Patient Register.

    The data were analysed using a longitudinal latent class (LC) model and a longitudinal latent Markov (LM) model.

    The LC model suggests that among the cases in the cohort there were 4 variants of utilization patterns.

    The LM model adequately described the sample in only 3 variants or classes.
