This study compared suicide rates in Australia, Slovenia, & Croatia with suicide rates in Croatian immigrant groups in Australia & Slovenia in a 10-year period between 1985 & 1994. It was found that Croat immigrants to Australia have the lowest suicide rate, but the highest male-female suicide ratio, which the authors suggest may be the consequence of underreporting of suicides in this area. Differences in methods between these groups are also explored. (33 refs)
