Investigation of the Maximum Association for Suicide Rate and Social Factors Using Computer Algorithm (2007)
AuthorsFukuda, K., Takaoka, T.show all
A computer algorithm, the K-Maximum Subarray (K-MSA), is applied for the first time to investigate the maximum relationship between the total New Zealand population of suicide deaths (1983-2002) by age group, with four selected social factors; number of bankruptcies, unemployed people, divorces, and orphans and unsupported child beneficiaries, respectively. The range of ages from 5 to 80 years is divided into five-year groups, plus a “more than 85 years old” group. Social factors are classified into four classes (low, med, high and very high) based on their quartile ranges.
