The Lundby Study is a longitudinal psychiatric – epidemiological study of 3563 persons who at a certain date in 1947 &/or 1957 were registered in a geographically well-defined area in Sweden, Lundby. During the 25-15 year observation period, 23 males & 5 females committed suicide. Based on statistics for males, absence of psychiatric disorder implies a decreased risk of suicide, & depressive disorder implies a considerably increased risk.(NBB)
