New Micro-level Data on the Impact of Divorce on Suicide, 1959-1980: A Test of Two Theories.
Stack, Steven
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v52 n1 p119-27 Feb 1990
Analysis of effect of divorce on suicide using micro- and individual-level data provided some support for both status integration theory (predicting decline in effect of divorce on suicide) and Durkheimian perspective (predicting no change or increase in suicide). Gap between suicide rates of divorced and married, which has narrowed as divorce has become more common, was still substantial. (Author/NB)
