In this study, deaths among students at Yale University from 1920 to 1955 are analyzed. They are also compared to rates for the general U.S. population. Of 209 deaths, 95% were white males, while 5% were white females. The most common cause of death was accidents (43.8%), then suicide (12%). The number of deaths was lower than national rates, but the suicide rates was higher than nationally – but the difference was not statistically significant (5.1 deaths expected, 7 deaths observed).
