The authors reviewed 82 publications on youth suicide that have addressed, to different degrees, the ethnicity/culture of the population studied. Following a description of the main characteristics shared by these studies (for example, predominance of studies on blacks, whites, & Hispanics; lack of qualitative methodology), the rates & methods of youth suicide are discussed from a cross-cultural perspective.
