Gender and Suicide in the Elderly.
Canetto, Silvia Sara
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v22 n1 p80-97 Spr 1992
Notes that, in North America, older women are less likely to be suicidal than older men. Focuses on older women's low rates of suicide mortality. On basis of literature review, suggests several hypotheses, including one that gender differences in suicide mortality reflect differences in coping and another that gender differences are influenced by gender norms of suicidal behavior.
