Description:
There were 4,321 patients resident in Irish psychiatric hospitals and units on 31 March 2001, representing a hospitalisation rate of 160.3 per 100,000 population aged 16 years and over. This is a 78% reduction in resident patients over the 39-year period from 1963 to 2001 and a 47% reduction since our last psychiatric census in 1991. This reduction in in-patient residents is largely due to the death of older long-stay patients and their non-replacement by new long-stay patients.
