  1. Suicide and unemployment in Italy, 1982-1994.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    To investigate whether either the condition of being unemployed, or changes in unemployment rates are associated with suicide risk.

    Design-Administrative data for suicide according to occupational status have been analysed considering three employment categories : employed, seeking new job (unemployed), seeking first job (never employed).

    Comparison of suicide rates by economic position and correlation between suicide and unemployment rates have been made.

    Subjects and settings-20 457 deaths by suicide registered in Italy among economically active people from 1982 to 1994.

    Main outcome measures-Change over time in suicide rates by economic position ; coefficient of aggravation according to occupational status.

    Results

    Suicide rates among the unemployed are clearly and constantly higher than those among the employed : up to three times higher among men, and twice as high among women.

    Among the unemployed a clear and significant rise in suicide rates in both sexes took place over the study period ; suicide rates among the employed showed a less marked increase.

    The rise in suicide rates was accompanied by a concurrent rise in unemployment rate percentage.

    Men seem to be affected most by this change in unemployment rate percentage ; women are subject to less evident influences and variations. (...)
