Abstract BACKGROUND: This study reports the prevalence of psychiatric disorder in women from a Canadian community. The GHQ and the CES-D were compared for their utility. METHOD: A thousand women over the age of 18 were mailed the GHQ and the CES-D. Our return rate was 44.4\%; 24\% were personally interviewed by interviews blind to screening information. The CIDI was used to establish DSM-III-R diagnoses. Four versions of the GHQ and one version of the CES-D were calibrated against the CIDI. RESULTS: The prevalence of general psychiatric disorder was estimated as between 15\% and 19\%, anxiety disorders between 10\% and 13\%, and depression occurring with anxiety between 3\% and 4\%. The calibrated GHQ was the most reliable instrument. CONCLUSIONS: Prevalence of DSM-III-R psychiatric disorder can be reliably determined with the calibrated GHQ. Anxiety disorders are most prevalent in this community, and were best detected using calibrated versions of the longer form GHQ.
