This means there are 12 different attributes available on every patient accepted in this time interval: age, patient class (bearer of the costs), marital status, occupation, physical constitution, reason for incapacitation, length of the attack (that lead to institutionalization), danger and suicide intent, education level, length of stay, reason for discharge.
