This quantitative study, covering 1959-1969, of suicide in Mexico attempts to statistically demonstrate the major characteristics of suicide victims (sex, age, marital status, occupational group, nationality, home, illness, number of attempts,) by correlating pairs of values. The study also examines the nature of Mexican suicides (location, methods used, apparent causes and timing) through statistical analysis of correlations. The suicides of males and females are also compared. (LG)
