Newman, Stephen C.; Thompson, Angus H.
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v33 n1 p80-87 Spr 2003
Examines the association between pathological gambling and attempted suicide using data from a prevalence study. The odds ratio for pathological gambling was statistically significant when major depression was the only comorbid mental disorder in the model. As terms for additional mental disorders were included, pathological gambling ceased to be statistically significant. (Contains 30 references and 3 tables.) (GCP)
