Provides empirical evidence contrary to Whitt’s comment about Stack’s review of the literature on suicide. Whitt argued that the rate of lethal aggression is different from the separate rates of suicide & homicide & would have quite different predictors. A reanalysis of data from a study (Lynn, 1971) of 18 industrialized nations found that the lethal aggression rate & the direction of aggression measure did not have different correlates from those of suicide & homicide rates.
