Divorce, Suicide, and the Mass Media: An Analysis of Differential Identification, 1948-1980.
Stack, Steven
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v52 n2 p553-60 May 1990
Examined the triggering effect of maritally related suicide stories in the mass media on monthly suicide rates of those involved in divorce or in marital distress. Support was found for this effect, independent of season and of changes in unemployment, but the unemployment rate was more closely associated with suicide than suicide stories in the media.
