79 subjects who attempted suicide in the spring were compared to 165 subjects who had attempted suicide at other times. Those who had attempted in the spring were found to be less often married, more often agnostic & more often living with siblings or in institutions. Results are seen as lending partial support to Durkheim’s notion that suicides in the spring might be more motivated by anomie than suicides at other times of the year. (4 ref)
