In their article assessing the link between country music airtime & metropolitan suicides rates, Stack & Gundlach (1992) found that the greater the airtime devoted to country music, the greater the white suicide rate. In an attempt to replicate their suicide model for whites, the present authors used the same data & methods. Their results indicate that country music – both bivariately & multivariately – has a negative, though insignificant effect on white urban suicide rates. (7 refs.)
