Over 26 years some 73 patients with schizophrenia were observed. Three types were considered, true schizophrenia, schizophrenia simplex, and schizoaffective disorders. Of those traced and alive in 1971, some 18% of the group had recovered, 46% had made a social recovery, 25% were unemployed in the community, and 11% were long-stay hospital patients.
