Trends in Firearm Suicide among Older American Males: 1979-1988.
Kaplan, Mark S.; And Others
Gerontologist, v34 n1 p59-65 Feb 1994
Used National Center for Health Statistics Compressed Mortality data to perform age-specific analysis of linear trends in suicide. Found males aged 65+ years were most likely to use firearms. In 1988, nearly 80% of suicides by older males were committed with firearms. Firearm-related suicide rates were much lower for blacks than whites 65 and over. (Author/NB)
