Seiden, Richard H.
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v13 n4 p265-84 1981
Describes age patterning of White and non-White suicide rates which reveal a consistent divergence: White suicide rates increase with age while non-White suicides peak in youthful years. Analyzes six explanatory hypotheses including: (1) differential life expectancy; (2) screening out of the violence prone; (3) role and status; and (4) values. (Author/JAC)
