Sorenson, Susan B.; Golding, Jacqueline M.
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v18 n3 p205-18 Fall 1988
Examined lifetime prevalence of suicide ideation and attempts in 1,425 Hispanics and 1,309 non-Hispanic Whites. Compared to non-Hispanic Whites, fewer Hispanics reported ideation or attempts. More women of both ethnic groups reported suicide attempts than did men. Individuals with psychiatric disorder diagnoses were more likely to report suicide ideation or attempts than were those without disorders. (Author/NB)
