I'm trying to find information on the suicide rate in the 30s, 40s, and 50s in America. I'm having no luck. Please help. Thanks.

They didn't really track that sort of thing prior to Emo, did they? Suicide didn't used to be cool.

Bob Dole isn't going to spend a lot of time on it, but at a glance, it looks like his data is inconsistent with CDC reports.

And without buying his book, you can't tell where he came up with the numbers...
