The Occupational Environments of African-American Women Suicide Victims.
Alston, Maude H.
Journal of Black Studies, v20 n2 p170-79 Dec 1989
Utilizes a sample of 50 Black and 79 White females who committed suicide in Georgia in 1979 to compare the occupational distribution of Black and White female suicides. Finds that married Black female suicides are disproportionately represented in most occupations, indicating a possible interactive effect between occupation and marital stress factors. (FMW)
