To study the psychological and social connotations of mental retardation in Canada, to identify demographic detail, and to develop research instruments and methodology, the proposed research studied the total population (110,000 persons) of Prince Edward Island. Subjects were randomly selected from ages 10 through 64. Prevalence tables are included, but the final results of the study are not yet available. The present knowledge is reviewed, and the methods to be used in the study are described. (JM)
