Abstract:

Although the suicide rate among American youths between the ages of 10-24 has dramatically increased during the last 50 years, little research has examined this outcome within larger social contexts of the adolescent environment. Relying on Durkheim’s theory of social integration, the current analysis examines the effect of individual and structural level social integration on adolescents’ suicide attempts. Using a generalized sample of 6,406 respondents within 314 neighborhoods, we examine the assumption that high levels of religious, familial, neighborhood, and school integration (and regulation) are associated with fewer suicide attempts among youths. Our analysis reveals some interesting results; while we find support for the traditional Durkheimian assumptions, multilevel analysis results indicate that neighborhood disorganization constructs (i.e. population density and neighborhood disadvantage) reduce adolescents’ probability of suicide attempts. Moreover, we find evidence that adolescent depression and neighborhood religiosity interact to influence suicide attempts.
