Statistical testing, by regression, of the influence of selected socioeconomic variables on hospitalization rate produced some interesting results. Of most interest was the finding that elderly populations tended to increase hospitalization rate at all age groups. It is hoped to carry this work further using more refined data.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Royal College of Psychiatrists||Journal:||The British Journal of Psychiatry||Volume:||114||Issue:||506||Start page:||15||End page:||20||Copyright (published version):||1968 The Royal College of Psychiatrists||Subject LCSH:||Psychiatric hospitals--Utilization--Ireland
