Vermont State Hospital Patient Data (1898, 1920, 1930, 1940)

This exhibit shows five different data tables about admitted patients at the Vermont State Hospital. The first three tables are from 1898, depicting data on the form of disease admitted patients had, the cause of illness, and the occupation(s) they previously held. The last two data tables show a breakdown of the type of illness that admitted patients had in 1920 and 1930, respectively. These two tables are most similar in nature to the first table of the exhibit: "Form of Mental Disease in Cases Admitted (1898)". Each data table is described and its key takeways are highlighted. Similarities and differences, as well as connections, are drawn amongst all of the data tables in this exhibit. The next page is a simple introductory page, just showing the images that will follow in the succeeding pages.
