•ECA:how comparable diagnosis is b/w lay and clinician
-sample of both.
-if person suffering not suffering, vs lay interviewers. Not much agreement b/w lay
and clinician’s categorization of mentally ill or not.
-criticism: local areas 5 only.
-very low agreement b/w dis and clinical diagnosis. New interview schedule. NCS
updated the DIS and came up wid CIDI.
-using CIDI= much better agreement.
(NCS: how many have more than one disorder.
-DSM= if u have a specific disorder, no other diagnosis.)
-NCS-R used CIDI. But exception, by time R was implemented we were now at DSM-
-first criticism. Too high prevalence rate.
-pple are just not seeking help, butprevelance rates are high
•Even though eca and ncs used similar instruments, they got very diff results= second
-ncs prevalence rates very high.
-not sth distorted, u shud b having similar results (if random 5 samples or whole
-diff dsm version.
-more disorders added every year in DMS. Classifications of wats a disorder are
so probably that’s y ncs vs dis.
- NCS=subjects for paid(wasn’t really intended), ECA =voluntary. Plpe were selected
as for NCS (lower eco status= more likely to participate , more mental health probs
in lower ecs people. Selected for pple wid mental health disorders. Pple wid low
money/socio status=more likely to have mental problems).
-diff methods used by interviewers to help subjects remember. Diff ways to help
subjects remember. Here it was more sensitive.
-if u ask a 50yr old at wat age she had the first kiss, they might have to anchor it ,
was it before or after? Was it grade 11 or 12? CIDI used more sensitive probes.
Therefore NCS pple reported more mental disorders
-screening qs. In DIS at beginning of each section.they’d ask have u in the past 12
