Abstract

A nationwide study of suicide in Greece from 1980 through 1995 demonstrated: 1. A mean age-standardized suicide rate of 5.86/100,000 for males and 1.89/100,000 for females. 2. An increase in suicide rates withage, especially in males. 3. Significant rising trends of male suicides in the 45-54 age group. 4. Significant declining trends of female suicides in age groups 15-24, 75-84, and total. 5. The lowest suicide rates among married men and women. 6. Exceptionally high rates in youngwidowed men. 7. Rural suicide rates were twice as high as urban rates. 8. Suicide methods were mostly violent, especially in males. 9. Hanging was the most common method, employed in approximately 50% of all suicides. The low suicide rates and the trends observed can probably beattributed to a synthesis of social and cultural characteristics of the Creek people and ongoing changes in Greek lifestyle.
