Goldberg recounts the results of a statistical study in the U.S. conducted between 1971-1974 relating specific factors to the high levels of suicide ideation in young adults. Using tables, the study concludes that a statistically significant relationship exists between ideation and depressive symptomology, minor psychiatric symptoms, physical illness, early loss of mother, aggression, and occupational status.
