A number of encouraging advances have occurred in Psychiatric epidemiology over the past twenty years. Instead, Psychiatric epidemiology traditionally lags behind other branches of epidemiology because of difficulties encountered in conceptualizing and measuring mental disorders. Major advances in descriptive Psychiatric epidemiology in recent years include the development of reliable and valid fully structured diagnostic interviews, the implementation of parallel cross-national surveys of the prevalence and correlates of mental disorders, and the initiation of research in clinical epidemiology.
