Abstract
The Office of Population Censuses and Surveys (now part of the Office for National Statistics), jointly with the Royal College of General Practitioners and the Department of Health, conducted the fourth of a series of studies of Morbidity Statistics from General Practice in 1991-92. The study examines the pattern of disease seen by GPs by the age, sex and socio-economic characteristics of patients. Data are available for three main regions: the North, the Midlands and Wales and the South.
