Sayil I~~Berksun O E~~et al
Comprehensive research on the epidemiology of suicide attempts was carried out by the Ankara University Crisis Intervention Centre in 1990. The present study repeated the 1990 research to determine the incidence of attempted suicide in Ankara in 1995 & to compare the results to those of 1990. In 1995, the attempted suicide rate was 113 per 100,000 compared to 107 per 100,000 in 1990. In both years: 1) the majority of attempters were female; & 2) most attempters were between 15 & 34 years of age.
