Data on admissions, first admissions, discharges and deaths are reported firstly for the country as a whole, secondly by health board area of origin of patient, then by individual hospital and finally hospital type. A range of c1assificatory variables are used in presenting the data i.e. gender, age, marital status, socioeconomic group, voluntary/ non-voluntary status, diagnosis, length of stay. Selected findings, changes and trends are commented on. The report is one of a series of annual reports of patient movement produced by the Mental Health Section of the Health Research Board and its predecessor the Medico-Social Research Board. As part of its epidemiological work in the mental health area, The Health Research Board, in addition maintains four Psychiatric Case Registers in association with St. Loman's Hospital, Dublin and carries out censuses of the psychiatric inpatient population from time to time. A complete listing of on-going publications from the Mental Health Section of the Health Research Board is produced in Appendix 1.
