Dooley, David; And Others
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v19 n4 p321-36 Win 1989
Conducted two studies on economic stress and suicide on same population. First study replicated aggregate time-series work using monthly data for 1975-82 for Los Angeles, California. Results do not support contention that economic contraction has strong, widespread effect on suicide in general population. Findings suggest effect that regional economy has on suicide is complex and depends on individual-level factors. (Author/NB)
