Discussion Based on Analysis of the Suicide Rate and the Average Disposable Income per Household in Japan

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.298
Pages: 
340–3
Synopsis: 
The suicide rates and the average disposable income per household in Japan from 1994 to 2008 were examined. The average disposable income per household was related to the suicide rate among the total population and among men but not among women.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Suicide is one of the major social issues in Japan. According to a report of the National Policy Agency, there were approximately 22000 to 24000 annual suicides between 1994 and 1997 and there have been over 30000 annual suicides in Japan since 1998. For these reasons, we think it is important to discuss the economic factor related to suicides in recent years.

Issue: 
Pages: 
516–20
Synopsis: 
For the period 2007–2010, the adolescent suicide rate in Jamaica was 1.1 per 100 000 adolescents with a preponderance of male deaths by hanging.

ABSTRACT


Objective: Suicide is increasingly acknowledged as a global problem. Yet little is known worldwide about suicide rates among adolescents. Several social factors that exist in Jamaica present as stressors and may predispose to suicide. Ascertaining prevailing patterns and associated factors is important for crafting interventions. This paper establishes adolescent suicide rates for the years 2007–2010 in Jamaica and provides related epidemiological data.
