Based on gender discrepancy statistics, it appears men in particular were being misdiagnosed far more frequently than women. Misdiagnosis is still an issue at times, especially among men.
But recent research has revealed enough details about borderline personality disorder to make it far easier for mental health experts to diagnose. Professionals are also aware that BPD is often accompanied by co-occurring mental health conditions, and they can detect the presence of multiple disorders by making subtle distinctions between symptoms. Despite progress, the problem of misdiagnosis has not been completely solved.
Mental health professionals are not perfect, and there is no way to eliminate the human element from the diagnostic equation.

Thus, for her setup for the early twentieth century, leading to the Bisbee Deportation of , Benton-Cohen shows that ethnic lines were more fluid in farming communities and rigid in Bisbee. This would soon change, though.
This coincided with the hardening of racial lines statewide, and gradual moves toward classifying Mexicans as a separate race. Labor organization also increased in Bisbee.
Even in , the U. Benton-Cohen uses Cochise County which, as she reminds her reader, is the size of Rhode Island and Connecticut combined, as a microcosm for wider issues of ethno-racial boundary-making in the United States, particularly in the multi-ethnic West. Benton-Cohen also rightfully argues that categories of race, ethnicity, national origin, class, occupation, and gender cannot be separated in this context.
