Burrows, S., & Laflamme, L. (2005). Living circumstances of suicide mortality in a South African city: An ecological study of differences across race groups and sexes. Suicide and Life Threatening Behavior, 35(5), 592-603.

In this study the importance of living area circumstances for suicide mortality was explored. Suicide mortality was assessed across race and sex groups in a South African city and the influence of area-based compositional and sociophysical characteristics on suicide risk was considered. Suicide mortality rates are highest among Whites, in particular White males. Main--and independent--dimensions of the living circumstances of residential areas (i.e., socioeconomic circumstances, economic need, and matrimony) influence age-adjusted suicide rates for both sexes but minimally so for race groups. Less favorable clusters of circumstances have a protective effect.
