A study of the relationship between sociodemographic conditions and suicidal risk was conducted on 377 cases of suicide committed in Genoa between 1985 and 1988. We used random subjects among genoa residents as a control group. Data obtained were analyzed by means of an unconditional logistic regression model. The most intersting result of the study is the considerable suicide risk found among unmarried people.
