  1. Urban and rural suicide differentials in migrants and the Australian-born, New South Wales, Australia 1985-1994.

    Article - En anglais

    We estimated risk of suicide in adults in New South Wales (NSW) by sex, country of birth and rural/urban residence, after adjusting for age ; we also examined youth suicide (age 15-24 years).

    The study population was the entire population of NSW, Australia, aged >=15 years during the period 1985-1994.

    Poisson regression was used to examine the relationship between predictor variables and the risk of suicide, with the focus on migrant status and area of residence.

    A significantly higher risk of suicide was found in male migrants from Northern Europe and Eastern Europe/former USSR, compared to Australian-born males ; a significantly lower suicide risk occurred in males from Southern Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

    In female migrants, those from UK/Eire, Northern Europe, Eastern Europe/former USSR and New Zealand exhibited a significantly higher risk of suicide compared to Australian-born females.

    A significantly lower risk of suicide occurred in females from the Middle East.

    Male migrants overall were at significantly lower risk of suicide than the Australian-born, while female migrants overall had a significantly higher risk of suicide than Australian-born females.

    Among migrant males overall, the rural-urban suicide risk differential was significantly higher for those living in non-metropolitan areas (RR=1.9 ; 95% Cl : 1.7-2.1).

    Suicide risk was significantly higher in non-metropolitan male immigrants from the UK/Eire (RR=1.4 ; 95% Cl : 1.1-1. (...)
