Gage S W~~Margiotta A M
The scope of this report covered all attempted & completed suicides in Henrico County during January 1989-June 1991. Analysis of the data found that young people attempted suicide more often but were the least likely to complete suicide. Females outnumbered males in attempts but males were more likely to complete. The incidence of suicide among blacks was significantly lower than among whites. This report is made up of, in large part, charts depicting the results of the data analysis.
