This study investigated suicides by persons aged 10-19 during the years 1978-1982 in Montreal using records from the Office of the Coroner. Age, gender, method of suicide, & month of death were noted. Mean incidence of suicide for the entire sample was 5.92 per 100,000 population. Incidence was approximately 10 times higher among 15-19-year-olds than among 10-14-year-olds. The epidemiology of adolescent suicide in Montreal appears to be similar to that reported in other locations. (20 refs.)
