copy, Dec. 1996. Published as "Chapter 12" in C. Bagley & R. Ramsay,
Eds. (1997) Suicidal Behaviours in adolescent and adults: taxonomy,
understanding and prevention. Brookfield, Vermont: Avebury. A shorter
version of this paper was published as Suicidal Behaviors in Homosexual
and Bisexual Males in Crisis, The International Journal of Suicide
and Crisis Studies, Vol. 18(1), 1997, pp. 24-34 (PubMed "abstract"
link with a document delivery service. The abstract is also available on
webpage.). The results of this study, combined with the another
major demographic study also published in 1998, and additional
information have been used to produce a monumentally important CAVEAT
ALERT! In 2000, a CDC-Based study - from an NHANES sample
taken between 1988 and 1992 - produced a subsample of young homosexually
oriented young adult males (age = 17 to 29 years) comparable in age range
of the sample taken for this study (age = 18 to 27 years, sample taken
in 1991) with "suicide attempt result - compared to same-age 'heterosexual'
males - which replicated the results of this study. See Addendum.
