    • Abstract:
      This article talks of relationship between suicide and occupational status according to two different theories. A popular opinion in the etiology of suicide is that low status occupational groups should have relatively low suicide rates, whereas high status groups such as professional and managerial workers should have high suicide rates. According to economic theory of suicide, an inverse relationship is predicted between occupational status and suicide. This is derived from the idea that poor should have a relatively high rate of suicide due to frustration associated with a relatively large gap between their material needs and the money available for the meeting of these needs.
