Suicide and the Elderly: An Annotated Bibliography and Review

Synopsis

An overview of the gerontological suicide literature is followed by a guide to bibliographies, indexes, and abstracts dealing with elderly suicide. The largest portion of the book is devoted to thorough annotations of individual references organized in three categories--case studies, surveys, and empirical investigations. Non-English language works are considered separately. A demographic appendix drawn from official statistical sources for the United States presents tables and graphs of suicide data by age, sex, and race.
