Suicide Prediction Revisited.
Pokorny, Alex D.
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v23 n1 p1-10 Spr 1993
Reanalyzed data from 1983 prospective study of suicide in cohort of 4,800 psychiatric inpatients using logistic regression. Results were same as in previous study: too few of the subsequent suicides were identified and there were too many false positives to make procedure useful. Additional artificial logistic regression analyses helped but fell well short of perfection. (Author/NB)
