Abstract: Young men have started to kill themselves extremely frequently, more than do Amerindians, and all over Arctic. Figures are based on small numbers, with much important background information missing. Prevention techniques are often of panic nature, not thought out.

Article ends with author's experience of this study and reactions of fellow scientists and others.
