The author did a systematic cross-national investigation of the impact of culture shock of international migration on the suicide rate in 34 nations. Statistical analysis indicated that the rate of immigration affected the incidence of suicide independently of the 2 control variables used in this study, the proportion of the population over 65, & female participation in the labour force.
