This study was developed in an attempt to gain information concerning the relative distribution of assignment of responsibility in suicide as compared with other modes of death. Subjects consisted of 99 male undergraduate students. Rating scales and open-ended questions revealed that those seen as significant others in the suicide death were given more responsibility than in the other two forms of death.
