Suicide and the Contemporary Woman: Are Male and Female Suicide Rates Converging?
Steffensmeier, Renee Hoffman
Sex Roles, v10 n7-8 p613-31 Apr 1984
Examination of White suicide rates, 1960-78, showed that: (1) suicide rates remain considerably higher for men than women; and (2) sex differences in suicide rates narrowed during the 1960s but held relatively stable during the 1970s. Explanation of these patterns involves a combination of sociohistorical and methodological factors. (CMG)
