The Use of Capture-Recapture Methods and Verbal Autopsy in Identifying the True Incidence of Suicide
In the Philippines, barriers to reporting suicide make it difficult to determine the scope of the problem. In urban and rural areas, key informants will be interviewed regarding suicide reporting practices. Psychological autopsies will be conducted and compared with death records so that suicide intervention needs can be determined.
