This study compared two groups of Minnesota public school adolescents: those who reported having sexual intercourse at or before age 10 years, & a control group of adolescents who either, had not had intercourse at all, or had done so at age 16 or older. Differences were evident for previous suicide attempts, with 3 to 4 times as many index males and females reporting attempts within the past year as compared to controls.
