Fernquist, Robert M.
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v31 n3 p333-41 Fall 2001
Political integration theory (Durkheim) argues that when political crises occur, individuals band together to solve the problem at hand, which yields lower suicide rates. This analysis examines a different component of political integration-attitudes. Cross-sectional time series analysis reveals that attitudes individuals hold toward such an event are significantly related to suicide rates. (BF)
