The incidence of schizophrenia is regarded as being similar between different cultures and times. However, several studies, mostly based on first-admission rates, have suggested that the incidence has declined over the past 10-15 years. Data from England and Wales for 1952-86 have been examined: there has been a substantial decrease, beginning in the mid-1960s, in the incidence of schizophrenia.
