Driver suicides in Finland - are they different in northern and southern Finland? / Kati Maarit Hernetkoski, Esko Olavi Keskinen, Inkeri Kaarina Parkkari.

Title: Driver suicides in Finland - are they different in northern and southern Finland? / Kati Maarit Hernetkoski, Esko Olavi Keskinen, Inkeri Kaarina Parkkari.
Author(s): Hernetkoski, Kati Maarit.
Keskinen, Esko Olavi.
Parkkari, Inkeri Kaarina.
Date: 2009.
In: International Journal of Circumpolar Health. (2009.), Vol. 68(3) (2009)
Abstract: Examines prevalence of driver suicides in Finland during years 1974-2006; also differences between northern and southern Finland in regards to number of cases and backgrounds of drivers who committed suicide in this way. Finds that driver suicides represent small proportion (2%) of all suicides committed in Finland each year. However, proportion of driver suicides of all fatal motor accidents is greater, around 8%-9%. As majority of driver suicides are collisions, they affect an even larger group of people.
