Marital Status, Alcohol Consumption, and Suicide: An Analysis of National Data.
Stack, Steven; Wasserman, Ira
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v55 n4 p1018-24 Nov 1993
Examined marital status and suicide using individual-level data on 10,906 deaths. Found that low marital integration significantly increased odds of dying from suicide, independent of alcohol consumption. Low marital integration also affected suicide indirectly through its association with alcohol consumption. Alcohol consumption was more closely related to risk of suicide than low marital integration. (Author/NB)
