This study examines the association between different demographics (e.g., gender, race, age, socioeconomic status) and the occurrence of different, highly prevalent mental disorders (e.g., depression, anxiety, eating disorders) in the local community. We can reference larger statistics on national prevalence rates of mental disorders to compare whether the prevalence rates found in the local community are higher, lower, or average.
