Race Differences in Strains Associated with Suicidal Behavior among Adolescents.
Watt, Toni Terling; Sharp, Susan F.
Youth & Society, v34 n2 p232-56 Dec 2002
Investigated suicidal strains contributing to suicidal behaviors among adolescents by race. Data from the Add Health Project support the presence of process differences by race and delineate the specific nature of these differences. For example, Blacks experience more status strains, but they are more religious than Whites (which serves to suppress black suicide rates). (Contains references.) (SM)
