||A statistical analysis of 117 cases of suicide by Finnish seamen between 1965 and 1977. Age, married status, work on ship, alcohol consumption and method of suicide were among the variables analysed. For crew members, the rate of suicide was 2.5 times higher than among the general population. The highest frequency was among crew members who were 25-34 years old, were unmarried, working on tankers and who changed ships frequently.
