Abstract:The first data set used is from large‐scale epidemiological surveys implemented as part of the World Health Organisation World Mental Health Survey Initiative (WMHSI). These surveys were conducted between 2002 and 2005 in ten OECD countries (three more OECD countries have surveys in the field). They use a common diagnostic instrument, the WHO Composite International Diagnostic instrument (CIDI), which measures the occurrence of various types of disorders, their nature and intensity, and the treatment provided.
