Bussu, Anna and Detotto, Claudio and Sterzi, Valerio (2012) Social conformity and suicide. Cagliari, CRENoS-CUEC. p. 28 (Working Papers CRENoS, 2012, 7). ISBN 978-88-84-67-731-0. Working Paper.
We study the relationship between suicide rates and socioeconomic factors by using a panel data at Italian province level in the time span 1996-2005. Our analysis
focuses on the impact of social norms on suicidal behaviours. In particular, beyond the usual social correlates of suicide rates, we propose an aggregate measure of social conformity which refers to the religious sphere as an area of conflict between individual and social behaviours. GMM and dynamic spatial panel data approach are
implemented to control for serial and spatial autocorrelation.
