Abstract/Description of Original Work

This meta-analysis will look into five cross-sectional surveys that explore the prevalence of suicide with third party factors. These third party factors are (1) suicide methods, (2) separation/marital status, and (3) religion. This meta-analysis will ignore racial and ethnic influences on the prevalence of suicide because race/ethnicity is a broad topic with heavy influence on the prevalence of suicide. It could skew the prevalence of the supplementary attributes of suicide methods, separation/marital status and religion. For example, African American women are claimed to have lower rates of suicide than other women (and men) in the United states because of their possible access to preventative suicide factors including social support, religiosity, negative attitudes regarding suicide acceptability, and African American culture (Marion & Range, 2003). The research on suicide methods with gendered prevalence of suicide methods will be used to analyse the clinical social work relevance of hospitalization because it is closely related to suicide hospitalization intervention. The research about separation/marital status and religion with gendered prevalence of suicide will be used to look into improvements of suicide counselling interventions. As men are more likely influenced by the factors of separation/marital status, and religion, it may be looked into how we can specialize suicide counselling intervention to accommodate their life experiences even further to increase the effectiveness of overall social work suicide intervention. This meta-analysis may be best sought out as a developed hypothesis for future research.
