This chapter estimates rates of incidence of specific disorders and charts them for each sex across the life span, consistent with the life course epidemiological approach, which is highly useful to psychiatric epidemiology. First, it briefly describes data sources and details the methods used in creating population estimates of mental disorders. It then turns to a discussion of the onsets, courses, and outcomes of mental illnesses, based on data from the Baltimore Epidemiologic Catchment Area follow-up study and the National Comorbidity Survey studies.

Keywords:   mental disorders, incidence rates, psychiatric epidemiology, population estimates, Baltimore Epidemiologic Catchment Area, National Comorbidity Survey
