There are now six psychiatric case-registers covering areas in England, two in Scotland and one in Wales. All record the contacts made by patients or clients from a defined geographical area with specified medical and social services. This information is stored in a linked and cumulative file so that the care of any individual or group can be followed over time and the patterns of care established. The geographical base allows rates to be calculated and epidemiological research to be conducted.
