Abstract: The epidemiology of suicide in India from 1975-1994 was explored, with data on suicide rates by gender, the methods used for suicide, and the officially-recorded motives for suicide. In 1991, the Indian suicide rate was 9.2 per 100,000 per year, with a male rate of 10.6 and a female rate of 7.9. The most common methods for suicide are poisoning and hanging. The only predictor of the regional variation in Indian suicide rates was population density, while the time-series suicide rate was predicted by female participation in labor force and fertility.
