Objective: Using prospectively gathered data, we assessed cumulative incidence of alcohol dependence using the Diagnostic Interview Schedule (DIS) based on criteria from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Revised Third Edition (DSM-III-R). Method: Probability samples of area residents were selected by census tracts and households in five communities of the Epidemiologic Catchment Area Survey program. The baseline interview for the Baltimore site was completed in 1981, and...

Background: There is an ongoing research effort to test if depression is a homogeneous clinical syndrome and to identify valid and useful subtypes based on the number and nature of depressive symptoms. This study summarizes the patterns of depressive symptoms evident in a prospective study of the general population and examines the validity of potential subtypes by studying their course and etiologic heterogeneity. Methods: A general population sample of 1920 adults (aged 18-96) from the Baltimo...

OBJECTIVE: Research studies on the validity of current diagnostic and subthreshold categories of depression that use a population-based follow-up design are rare. The authors examined the validity and utility of four current depression categories by examining subject transition between categories and the symptoms, course, and risk factors of each. METHOD: A general population sample of 1,920 adults from the Baltimore Epidemiologic Catchment Area 13-year follow-up study were examined. Data on dia...

Background The field of psychiatric epidemiology continues to employ self-report instruments, but the low degree of agreement between diagnoses achieved using these instruments vs that achieved by psychiatrists in the clinical modality threatens the credibility of the results. Methods In the Baltimore Epidemiologic Catchment Area follow-up, 349 individuals who had a Diagnostic Interview Schedule (DIS) interview were blindly examined by psychiatrists using the Schedules for Clinical Assessment in...

ABSTRACT Objective: This study is to test the hypothesis that poor perceived cognitive competence might signal an increased risk of subsequent alcohol-related problems in children. Method: A prospective epidemiologic study of elementary school students aged 9–13 years in Baltimore, Maryland, was undertaken. Perceived cognitive competence, peer use of alcohol, and other suspected risk characteristics for alcohol-related problems were assessed in 1990, among 1232 children with no prior history of ...

OBJECTIVE: The epidemiology of cognitive decline over 11.5 years was investigated in a large community-residing population, with a special emphasis on the relationship between education and cognitive decline. METHOD: The study was an 11.5-year follow-up of a probability sample of the adult household residents of east Baltimore. From the Baltimore cohort of the Epidemiologic Catchment Area study, 1,488 participants completed the Mini-Mental State during three study waves in 1981, 1982, and 1993–1...

BACKGROUND The objective is to estimate parameters of the natural history of panic disorder, including its prodrome, incidence, recovery and recurrence. METHOD In 1981 the Baltimore Epidemiologic Catchment Area Study interviewed 3481 individuals probabilistically selected from the household population. During 1993-1996, 1920 of these individuals (73% of survivors) were interviewed again. Baseline and follow-up interviews included the National Institute of Mental Health Diagnostic Interview Sched...

Background: Natural history can be characterized by incidence, recurrence, and duration of episodes. Research on the incidence of major depression is rare; studies of recurrence and duration are limited to clinical samples. Methods: The Baltimore, Md, site of the Epidemiologic Catchment Area Program followed up its 1981 baseline cohort of 3481 respondents with an additional assessment in 1993 to 1996. Interviews were obtained from 1920 respondents (73% of the survivors). The Diagnostic Interview...
