  1. Causes of death in a cohort of 50 465 young men : validity of recorded suicide as underlying cause of death.

    Article - En anglais

    We studied causes of death in a cohort of all young males (n=50 465) conscripted for military service in 1969-70.

    Six hundred eighty three deaths occurred in the cohort during the follow-up through 1983.

    Injury-related deaths accounted for 75% of all deaths.

    Of these, 38% were definite suicides, 10% undetermined suicides and 30% motor vehicle accidents.

    The validity of officially recorded causes of death was studied by scrutinizing all death certificates (n = 683) and forensic reports, including police reports, toxicological and histological data, from a sample (n=322) of deaths with unclear circumstances.
