Public Approval of Suicide: A Situational Analysis.
Singh, B. Krishna; And Others
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v16 n4 p409-18 Win 1986
Using four national surveys conducted in 1977, 1978, 1982, and 1983, this study examined public opinions on suicide in four situations: incurable disease, bankruptcy, family dishonor, and being tired of living. It was found that respondents with attributes of higher education, lower religiosity, and higher commitment to freedom of expression were more likely to consider suicide as acceptable. (Author/NB)
