There were 7,290 first admissions, representing a rate of 270.5 per 100,000 population. The re-admission rate was 630.5, representing 70% of all admissions. Males accounted for over half (53%) of all admissions. Similarly, over half of all admissions (54%) were for single persons. The 45-54 year age group had the highest rate of admission at 1,129.2 per 100,000, while the 16-19 year age group had the lowest at 295.7. Among occupational groups, the unskilled had the highest rate of admission at 1,182.6 per l00,000 while own account workers had the lowest at 60.7. Three main diagnoses accounted for over two thirds of all admissions with depressive disorders accounting for 31 % and schizophrenia and alcoholic disorders each accounting for 19%.
