Sex Differences in Criminal Homicide and Suicide in England and Wales and the United States.
Palmer, Stuart
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v11 n3 p255-70 1980-81
In England and Wales, females are more prone to commit suicide than homicide. Homicidal offenders are more likely to victimize members of their own families and decidedly more prone to kill themselves. These tendencies are tentatively related to the possible development of a subculture of self-directed violence. (Author)
