It was hypothesized, but not supported, that suicide rates of nonwhites should be greater where definite boundaries of residential segregation are lessening. Suicide rates from 96 cities throughout the United States were correlated with the extent of residential segregation in those cities. The suicide rate of both whites & nonwhites was found to be greater in the larger cities & the suicide rate of whites was greater in cities where there was a large proportion of nonwhites.
