Break in time series: In year 2011, all patients that did not had contact with the health sector for
mental disorders within last 2-3 years were deleted from the list of patients with established
mental disorders. Therefore, the values for year 2012 are somewhat higher, because it includes both
new cases of mental disorders and cases that were not treated for 2-3 years.

Deviation from the definition: Data on new cases does not exist. Data contains the number of
patients with mental disorders (ICD-10: F00-F99) discharged from hospital. The number of discharges
includes deaths in hospitals, but excludes same-day separations and transfers to other care units
within the same institutions.
Break in time series: Up to and including the reporting year 2002, data only include discharges in
general hospitals and mental health hospitals. From reporting year 2003, data include additionally
discharges in preventive and rehabilitative hospitals; however discharges of these institutions with
less than 100 beds are not included. The years before 2003 are therefore not comparable to the
following years.
From the reporting year 2000, for the first time, data have been collected according to ICD-10.
