Abstract:

Using data on age-specific suicide death rates from 19 modern nations and cohorts born as early as 1875-79, we found that indicators of cohort related social capital, including relative cohort size and percentage of nonmarital births, were positively and significantly related to suicide rates. These effects are significantly stronger in the English-speaking family of nations, which have historically provided fewer political and social supports to families and children. The analytic model, an extension of the Age-Period Cohort Characteristic model, which utilizes hierarchical linear modeling, provides strong controls for age and period effects as well as autoregressive effects of cohorts. The inclusion of a number of cases from older age groups and data from a wider range of countries than in earlier studies provides greater evidence of the existence of cohort effects and, especially, the principle of “lifelong effects.”

Specifically using cohorts born in 1915 and later relative cohort size has been found to have an insignificant influence on suicide rates for nonwhites in the United States (Stockard and O’Brien 2002b) on suicide rates for women in a sample of 14 industrialized countries all of which are in the present sample (Stockard and O’Brien 2002a) and on homicide rates of whites in the United States (O’Brien and Stockard 2002).
