Abstract

This paper presents the concept of comorbidity in a perspective of epidemiology. A review of surveys from all over the world of the highest methodological standards has been done (which are: standardized diagnostic instruments, samples of at least few thousands participants and random selection). Despite of many controversies, connected with the idea of comorbidity (in the whole field of psychiatry), some of the conclusions are the same and, by that, they lead to reflections on, for example, health care organization.
