Abstract

No study has examined the financial impact of relapses on schizophrenia from the perspective of Japanese society. This study aimed to estimate the societal costs in Japan caused by the relapses of schizophrenia. The societal costs in Japan in 2013 due to relapses of schizophrenia were estimated by summing the productivity loss and deadweight loss caused by schizophrenia relapses in 2013. Deterministic sensitivity analysis was conducted for deadweight loss rate, relapse rate, and patient income. Japan incurred JPY 55,039 million societal costs because of relapses in 2013. This consists of JPY 3,990 million for productivity loss and JPY 51,049 million for deadweight loss. Rate of deadweight loss is the most significant cost driver in the sensitivity analysis. Relapses of schizophrenia could generate huge amount of societal costs by reducing labor productivity and economic efficiency. To curb these costs, relapse prevention is desired in treating schizophrenia.

Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 30 May 2017.
All research outputs
#15,735,548
of 25,390,692 outputs
Outputs from Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment
#1,506
of 3,127 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#168,682
of 305,777 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment
#32
of 78 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 25,390,692 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 37th percentile – i.e., 37% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 3,127 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 10.5. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 305,777 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 43rd percentile – i.e., 43% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 78 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 55% of its contemporaries.
