The presenter discussed the effects of social mobility & internal migration on suicide in SR Macedonia after World War II. In just over 20 years, from 1948 to 1971, the population structure changed from being mostly rural to being just over 50% urban. However, suicide still occurred most frequently in the rural population. Overall, results of the study indicated migratory movements & the mobility of the population were not a significant influence for the dynamics & the structure of the suicides.
