Urban Versus Rural Suicide: an Irascible and Irresoluble Problem?
Sanborn C J~~Niswander G D
The authors specifically studied the myth of rural tranquility versus urban harassment as it affects suicide rates, comparing basic statistics in sex & age groups, including modes of suicides & other epidemiological data. It was found that rural tranquility does not offer a low suicide environment. The authors also commented on the socio-psychological factors that might influence their findings & challenge the professional’s ineptness in reducing suicide rates in both rural & urban groups.
