Abstract A large-scale community survey in Shatin, Hong Kong, is presented with a modified two-phase design using flagged and nonflagged subsamples. A modified Self-Reporting Questionnaire and the Diagnostic Interview Schedule (version III) were used as the screening and diagnostic instruments, respectively. Lifetime rates for 19 Diagnostic Interview Schedule/DSM-III diagnoses are presented. The most common diagnoses in Shatin were tobacco dependence, generalized anxiety disorder, alcohol abuse and/or dependence, all phobias, and dysthymic disorder. The male-predominant disorders were tobacco dependence, alcohol abuse/dependence, pathological gambling, and antisocial personality. The female-predominant disorders were generalized anxiety disorder, all phobias, dysthymic disorder, major depressive disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and bereavement.
