This study found that non-nomadic Gypsies in 3 counties in Hungary had a lower completed suicide rate, but a higher attempted suicide rate, than ethnic Hungarians. The author concludes that the rate of attempted suicide is higher among the younger, partially assimilated Gypsies because of the conflict between the traditional values of their parents & the pull of the larger Hungarian culture.
