About this product
- DescriptionMental illnesses, such as schizophrenia, affective disorders and personality disorders, are associated with heavy ecomic and n-ecomic burdens. This paper examines the relationship between socio-ecomic status in early childhood and the probability of developing schizophrenia, affective disorders and personality disorders. We use a sample of all Danish men born in 1981 and control for family factors one year before the birth of the child. The results show that men born in low-income families are more likely to be hospitalised with affective disorders. Men born in families where the father was t employed at the child's birth are more likely to be hospitalised with schizophrenia or personality disorder, than men born in families where the father was employed as wage-earner. In general, few people in the population have a severe mental illness and, consequently, the probability of developing a severe mental illness is low. However, the relative differences in the predicted probability of developing a mental illness are large when we compare children who grew up families with average characteristics with children who grew up in families with low socio-ecomic status (ie: household income is low, parental education is basic, and parental occupational status is t employed).
