Using data from the 1979-85 National Longitudinal Mortality Study & multivariate hazards regression analysis, risk factors associated with suicide mortality among white American males were investigated. Results were mixed with regard to the social integration-suicide hypothesis. Divorced or separated men & those who live alone have significantly higher risks of suicide. However, single & widowed men do not have a significantly greater risk after controlling for key social factors. (27 refs.)
