Admissions to civil mental hospitals in New York have increased slightly since 1910, although the admission rate in the age groups 20–59 has been constant. The increase is mainly due to increase in bed capacity and to increase in old age psychoses. The incidence of dementia praecox has remained even since 1920, but paresis and manicdepressive psychoses have decreased. War I and the depression of the 30's had no perceptible effects on admission rates, unless perhaps for senile disorders since 1930. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
