The Ecology of Self-Injury: A Multivariate Approach
Jarvis G K~~et al
The authors found in an ecological study of distribution of self-injury in London, Canada self-injury occurred more often in central areas of the city. Multivariate analysis revealed that living arrangements, i.e. high density, single-person households are closely linked with inflated rates on self-injury. Low socio-economic status is also related to self-injury but neither family status nor mobility are significant predictors. This suggests direction for future research.
