If the suicide rate is to be lowered, more has to be known about the life-style of the victim, states Dr.Patel, quoting from Maris’ 1969 study. In this survey, the author accumulated life-style data on 764 completed suicides investigated in Greater London & North West Kent during the years 1967-69 inclusive. The findings are presented in point form, with commentary by Dr. Patel. 4 refs. (NBB)
