This article tabulates suicide statistics for Alaska natives, & compares these rates to other American native & the Los Angeles rates. The Alaskan rates are divided by year, method, agae, sex, & marital stauts. Rates for attempted suicide by age & sex are also provided. The author concludes the rate of suicide among Alaska natives is abnormally high; however, he admits the population is too small & too diverse to lend itself to reliable statistical analysis. (VM)
