Sixty-seven persons with recurrent major depression & a history of suicide attempts are compared with 163 persons with recurrent major depression & no history of suicide attempts. Patients with a history of attempts differed from non-attempters by suicidal ideation, marital isolation, neurovegetative signs, feelings of failure, & co-morbid alcoholism or bipolar II disorder. Logistic regression correctly classified 77% of the cases. Findings are discussed with reference to prediction of suicide.
