Abstract

Compared with the general population, the gap in the excess mortality for people with schizophrenia reduced slightly. However, the over 200% difference between the cohorts in the excess mortality for BPD individuals aged 15-44 years could be a warning sign. Future research to further examine the related factors underlying those changes is warranted.
