The Weekly Returns Service (WRS) of the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) is a sentinel network of general practitioners (GPs) reporting patient morbidity and encounter data. The WRS Annual Prevalence Reports, which have not been published for years past 2007, complement the WRS Annual Reports, which focus on disease incidence. Prevalence rates are presented at the ICD-9 chapter level, and at 3-digit ICD-9 level. Data are presented firstly as age-standardized person prevalance rates, and then by sex and wide age groups.
