For the period 1933-1986, the effect of the size of the military per capita & the percentage change in the size of military from year to year were placed in a multiple regression analysis to predict suicide & homicide rates. Results showed that the size of the military was associated with lower suicide & homicide rates. Military build-up versus demobilization had no discernible effect. (2 refs.)
