Interprovincial Migration and Suicide in Canada, 1971-78 (Discussion Paper No.40)
This study corroborates the findings by Stack (1980) on the relationship between interstate migration & suicide. Using Canadian data from the 1970s, strong support for a migration effect emerges. This finding also lends support to the culture shock hypothesis. The main effect of migration acts to raise the odds of suicide. A 1% change in migration would increase the rate of suicide by .67%.
