Suicide in Rural Areas: The Case of Japan 1960-80.
Kurosu, Satomi
Rural Sociology, v56 n4 p603-18 Win 1991
Japanese suicide rates are higher in rural than urban areas. In 1979-81, higher suicide rates were associated with sparse population, stagnant economy, and overrepresentation of females and elderly in the population, reflecting loss of social integration during a period of national economic growth and industrialization.
