To explore further the correlates of possessing accurate knowledge about suicide, a questionnaire was given to 63 American police officers, 102 American college students, 100 Turkish undergraduates, & 147 Filipino nursing students. Inaccuracy scores on the suicide myths inventory were not correlated with age, gender, or belief in an external locus of control in the 4 samples. Inaccuracy scores were positively correlated with depression scores for the sample of American students only.
