OBJECTIVE Suicide risk was addressed in relation to the joint effect of factors regarding family structure, socioeconomics, demographics, mental illness, and family history of suicide and mental illness, as well as gender differences in risk factors. METHOD Data were drawn from four national Danish longitudinal registers. Subjects were all 21,169 persons who committed suicide in 1981-1997 and 423,128 live comparison subjects matched for age, gender, and calendar time of suicide by using a… Expand
Suicide risk in relation to psychiatric hospitalization: evidence based on longitudinal registers.
TLDR
This study demonstrates that there are 2 sharp peaks of risk for suicide around psychiatric hospitalization, one in the first week after admission and another in theFirst week after discharge; suicide risk is significantly higher in patients who received less than the median duration of hospital treatment; affective disorders have the strongest impact on suicide risk in terms of its effect size and population attributable risk. Expand
Trends in suicide risk associated with hospitalized psychiatric illness: a case-control study based on Danish longitudinal registers.
TLDR
The reduction in suicide rate is substantial for patients who have been discharged from psychiatric hospitals for more than 1 year and for middle-aged and older patients. Expand
Psychiatric illness, socioeconomic status, and marital status in people committing suicide: a matched case-sibling-control study
TLDR
People who commit suicide deviate similarly from siblings and controls in exposure to hospitalised psychiatric disorders and socioeconomic disadvantages, although these factors contribute to the familial aggregation of suicides. Expand

TLDR
It is confirmed that people living in more urbanized areas are at a higher risk of suicide than their counterparts in less urbanization areas, but this excess risk is largely eliminated when adjusted for personal marital, income, and ethnic differences. Expand
Sex-specific impact of socio-economic factors on suicide risk: a population-based case-control study in Denmark.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that suicide risk is associated with a range of SES proxies but the strength and/or direction of the association can differ by sex, and prevention approaches should take this into consideration. Expand
Socio-economic status and risk for suicide by immigration background in Norway: A register-based national study.
TLDR
Person with an immigration background, as well as native Norwegians, shared most common risk factors for suicide, but the strength of associations between socio-economic factors and risk for suicide can differ by immigration background. Expand
Sociodemographic, psychiatric and somatic risk factors for suicide: a Swedish national cohort study
TLDR
All psychiatric disorders, COPD, cancer, spine disorders, asthma, stroke, diabetes, ischemic heart disease and specific sociodemographic factors were independent risk factors for suicide during 8 years of follow-up in Swedish adults. Expand
[Effect of sociodemographic factors, cancer, psychiatric disorder on suicide: gender and age-specific patterns].
TLDR
Factors such as living in city or rural areas, low economic status, the presence of a psychiatric disorder, and cancer were statistically meaningful risk factors in suicide, and these factors also differed by age group. Expand
Familial factors and suicide: an adoption study in a Swedish National Cohort
TLDR
The main familial effects of parental suicide and psychiatric morbidity on offspring suicide are not mediated by the post-natal environment or imitation, in contrast to effects of parents' alcohol abuse that are primarily mediated byThe post- prenatal environment. Expand

Suicide risk in relation to family history of completed suicide and psychiatric disorders: a nested case-control study based on longitudinal registers
TLDR
Completed suicide and psychiatric illness in relatives are risk factors for suicide, and the effect of family suicide history is independent of the familial cluster of mental disorders. Expand
Psychiatric illness and risk factors for suicide in Denmark
TLDR
Suicide prevention aimed at patients who are admitted to hospital with mental disorders and improved detection and treatment of mental disorders in the general population may be the most efficient strategy to decrease risk of suicide. Expand
Gender differences in risk factors for suicide in Denmark.
TLDR
The relative risks for suicide differed significantly between genders according to psychiatric admission status and being the parent of a child <2 years, however, adjustment for these factors did not eliminate the gender difference in suicide risk. Expand
Marital status and suicide in the National Longitudinal Mortality Study

TLDR
Marital status, especially divorce, has strong net effect on mortality from suicide, but only among men, while among women, there were no statistically significant differentials in the risk of suicide by marital status categories. Expand
Ethnicity, social factors, illness and suicide: a follow‐up study of a random sample of the Swedish population
TLDR
It is found that somatic diseases and psychiatric disorders, which are known risk factors for suicide, may be revealed in surveys conducted by interviewers without medical training, even if the prevalence of psychiatric disorders is to some extent underestimated. Expand
Psychosocial risk factors of child and adolescent completed suicide.
TLDR
The overall effect size on increasing suicide risk of the psychosocial factors is comparable with that for diagnostic factors, highlighting the importance of considering socioenvironmental factors when assessing suicide risk. Expand
Suicide, deprivation, and unemployment: record linkage study
TLDR
The findings support the idea that unemployment or lack of job security increases the risk of suicide and that social and economic policies that reduce unemployment will also reduce the rate of suicide. Expand

TLDR
The suicide risks estimated in this study are generally higher than those previously reported, notably in schizophrenia and personality disorder, and in previous in-patients. Expand
Social factors in suicide.
TLDR
While most of the age-related variation in social factors found in suicide seems to parallel the natural variation of these factors in the general population, some social findings in suicide might be related to the victims' psychopathology and excessive alcohol use. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that risk for suicide increases with age in individuals with major affective illness, and depressed elderly men are particular targets for suicide prevention strategies. Expand
