This study determined whether the prevalence & correlates of past-year suicide ideation & suicide attempts differ in Canadian soldiers when compared with Canadian civilians. Logistic regression interaction models were used. Although there was no significant difference between the 2 samples on prevalence of past-year suicide ideation, the prevalence of past-year suicide attempts was significantly lower in the Canadian Forces sample compared with the civilian population. Possible mechanisms for these differences are discussed. (50 refs.) JA
