This study analyses the incidence of suicide among children and young people aged between 10 and 29 in Sweden, during the period 1974-1986.
The study comprises 4,624 individuals whose deaths were the outcome of verified, E950-E959 (n=3,511) and undetermined, E980-E989 (n=1,113) suicides.
Regression analysis of different age groups separately and all age groups combined shows that the frequency of suicide among children and young people in Sweden did not increase in this period.
Nonetheless, mortality figures are high, especially for boys and young men aged 15-29.
