Extract

To the Editor: I read the article about racial-ethnic differences in the prevalence of psychotic symptoms (1) in the November 2013 issue with great interest. Although the primary finding of a relationship between psychosis and distress across racial-ethnic groups is of value, methodological concerns limit the utility of the Collaborative Psychiatric Epidemiology Surveys (CPES) data set in assessing racial-ethnic differences in psychosis prevalence.
