Based on they hypotheses of some authors that reports on suicide in media can lead to imitation, the author surveyed all articles of reported suicides (not only subway-suicides & -attempts) in the two largest Austrian daily newspapers & analyzed them in connection with the subway-suicide-scene. The findings suggest that if media reports should have an influence on suicides, this is substantial only regarding special methods of completing suicide. (6 refs)
