The incidence of suicide was studied among children & young people aged 10-29 years in Sweden during 1974-86. The suicide rate among this population did not increase over the study period. However, rates were still high, especially for males age 15-29. Methods of suicide varied between genders & age groups. A trend toward using more violent methods was noted among females in the 1980s compared to the 1970s. There were more divorced people in the suicide group compared to the general population.
