Poor Economy Tied to Rise in Suicides, British Study Finds
Date:8/15/2012

WEDNESDAY, Aug. 15 (HealthDay News) -- More than 1,000 people in the United Kingdom may have committed suicide as a result of the 2008-2010 recession, researchers suggest.

Following two decades of decline, the suicide rate in the United Kingdom increased 8 percent among men and 9 percent among women between 2007 and 2008, according to the report published online Aug. 15 in the BMJ.

The study also revealed that over the course of the decade, every annual 10 percent jump in the number of unemployed people was associated with a 1.4 percent increase in suicide among men.

From 2008 to 2010, the number of men in the United Kingdom without jobs rose on average by nearly 26 percent each year. This annual increase was linked with a 3.6 percent increase in suicide among men. The researchers pointed out this equated to 329 suicides related to unemployment.

"Local areas with greater rises in unemployment have also experienced higher rises in suicides, although this level was significant only among men, possibly because the suicide rates among women are only about a third of those among men. On its own, our study cannot ascertain whether the association between job loss and suicides is causal; however, the strength of the effect size, timing, consistency, coherence with previous research, existence of plausible mechanisms, and absence of any o
