    The incidence of schizophrenia is 3 times higher in migrants; but this drops to 1.8 times higher than natives when point prevalence rates are considered. This can be explained by

    A. Shorter duration of illness in migrants
    B. Higher death rate in natives
    C. Better treatment response in natives
    D. Better access to care in natives
    E. Longer illness duration in migrants
