The relationship between tightness/looseness and suicide rate will exhibit a curvilinear relationship, such that very tight and very loose nations have worse outcomes relative to nations intermediate on tightness-looseness
Suicide rate was found to be higher in both very tight and very loose nations. Additionally, compared to the linear model (F=2.76, p=.11, R-Squared=.06), the quadratic model was a significant improvement (F-change=4.81, p=.04, R-Squared change=.15).
