|dc.description.abstract||Suicide was attempted by 1641 people (502 males and 1139 females) in Singapore during 1980. Eleven of these committed suicide during the following three years, giving a suicide rate of 0.67%. Of the eleven suicides, five had schizophrenia and three depression. The risk of suicide in the year following attempted suicide is lower in Singapore (0.5%) than in Britain (1.6%). High risk factors for the Singapore patients were being Chinese, being male, and having a mental illness.|
