Using 6 MMPI scales and a multivariate discriminant analysis, the question was asked whether differences existed between nonsuicidal and threatened, attempted, and committed suicides. The results indicated that there were significant differences between the mean score of the 4 groups. The application of the various identification rates to populations with different suicidal base rates and the implication of the findings for the prediction of different types of suicidal behavior was dicussed.
