Evaluated the effect of a community psychiatric service on residential mobility by comparing schizophrenic patients (aged 14+ yrs) over a 5-yr period with nonpsychotic and general population controls in South Verona, a case register area in Northern Italy. Significant differences were found for movements within South Verona between the schizophrenic group and neurotic group. The former tended to move less than the latter. Sociodemographic factors associated with movements of the general population in Verona were being male and single; place of birth was less important. In the 2 patient groups as well as in the general population in South Verona, the percentages of those who moved outside the case-register area were relatively consistent.

Abstract

Evaluated the effect of a community psychiatric service on residential mobility by comparing schizophrenic patients (aged 14+ yrs) over a 5-yr period with nonpsychotic and general population controls in South Verona, a case register area in Northern Italy. Significant differences were found for movements within South Verona between the schizophrenic group and neurotic group. The former tended to move less than the latter. Sociodemographic factors associated with movements of the general population in Verona were being male and single; place of birth was less important. In the 2 patient groups as well as in the general population in South Verona, the percentages of those who moved outside the case-register area were relatively consistent.
