This study examines the link between duration of depression before treatment is introduced and the duration of depressive illness after treatment in a population of 59 female psychiatric inpatients. Most women were suffering with severe depression and the majority had had previous depressive illnesses. Calculation of the rank order correlation coefficient demonstrated no significant correlation between the duration of depression before initiation of treatment and the duration after treatment was introduced. This finding is discussed in relation to other relevant studies.
