Campus Student Suicide Rates: Fact or Artifact?
Silverman, Morton M.
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v23 n4 p329-42 Win 1993
Reviewed all English-language studies (14 foreign and 17 American) on campus student suicides. Only four single-site studies had higher suicide rate than comparable populations. Multiple-site collaborative studies done in U.S. since 1960 strongly suggest campus student suicide rate significantly less than in matched control population. (Author/NB)
