Abstract

Data are presented from a ten year follow-up study of persons enumerated in the 1950 New Haven Psychiatric Census. They support the hypothesis that there are significant relationships between social class and the patients' follow-up treatment status in 1960. Specifically, it was found that the lower the patients' social class position, the higher the percentage hospitalized in 1960, and the lower the proportion in out-patient treatment or no longer under any type of psychiatric care. Possible reasons for these relationships are discussed.
