Lester, David
Adolescence, v26 n101 p55-58 Spr 1991
Examined social variable data for 48 contiguous states from census publications and suicide rates for 1980 from National Center for Vital Statistics. Found suicide rates of youths in United States associated with social integration, age structure, and race/region. Found similar associations for older groups, suggesting similarities in impact of social variables on regional suicide rates. (Author/NB)
