This is a report on a psychiatric epidemiological census conducted in six Israeli villages. The method of case identification relied on data extracted from medical cards and the use of two shortened versions of the CMI. The results showed a distribution affected by sex, age, ethnicity, education, and “status consumer”. A comparison with other Israeli studies is made.
