Abstract

The purpose of the study was to assess the feasibility of using demographic and social competence information to predict length of stay in a psychiatric hospital. The results indicated that social competence variables were much better predictors of length of stay than demographic variables. Moreover, no combination of demographic and social competence variables led to more accurate predictors than social competence information alone.
