A Longitudinal Analysis of the Linkage between Suicide, Unemployment, and Marital Dissolution.
Wasserman, Ira M.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v46 n4 p853-59 Nov 1984
Explores the linkage of divorce and suicide from 1964 to 1977, controlling for variations in unemployment. Findings demonstrated that, even with controls, the divorce rate explains variations in the suicide rate, suggesting that the kinship system is being greatly altered, which increases the propensity toward suicide.
