Ajdacic-Gross, Vladeta; Killias, Martin; Hepp, Urs; Haymoz, Sandrine; Bopp, Matthias; Gutzwiller, Felix; Rössler, Wulf (2010). Firearm suicides and availability of firearms: The Swiss experience. European Psychiatry, 25(7):432-434.

Abstract

This study aimed to examine the association between the availability of firearms at home, and the proportion of firearm suicides in Switzerland in an ecological analysis. The data series were analysed by canton and yielded a fairly high correlation (Spearman's rho=0.60). Thus, the association holds also at a sub-national level.
