  1. "The number of suicide cases reported to be caused by extrapersonal frustration [EF] should be related to the number of TD [thwarting disorientation] situations in a cultunit, but this relationship should be weaker than the relationship between number of suicides . . . scored IF [interpersonal frustration] and number of TD [thwarting disorientation] situations scored present" (45)Krauss, Herbert H. - A cross-cultural study of suicide, 1966 - 3 Variables

    In this dissertation the author tests Naroll's "thwarting disorientation" theory of suicide further by testing hypotheses using individual suicide cases described in ethnography. Author also considered the societal factors that could create stress.

  2. "Whether a suicide case was considered IF [interpersonal frustration] of EF [extrapersonal frustration] was . . . independent of case length" (80)Krauss, Herbert H. - A cross-cultural study of suicide, 1966 - 3 Variables

    In this dissertation the author tests Naroll's "thwarting disorientation" theory of suicide further by testing hypotheses using individual suicide cases described in ethnography. Author also considered the societal factors that could create stress.

  3. "The number of suicide cases . . . should be directly related to the number of TD [thwarting disorientation] situations scored present [in a] cultunit" (44)Krauss, Herbert H. - A cross-cultural study of suicide, 1966 - 2 Variables

    In this dissertation the author tests Naroll's "thwarting disorientation" theory of suicide further by testing hypotheses using individual suicide cases described in ethnography. Author also considered the societal factors that could create stress.

  5. Men's divorce freedom and defiant homicide predicted suicides attributable to interpersonal frustration while only men's divorce freedom predicted suicides with apparent extrapersonal precipitants (227-228, 222).Krauss, Herbert H. - Social contexts of suicide, 1971 - 8 Variables

    This study investigates the thwarting disorientation theory of suicide, suggesting that the rate of suicide in a society can be predicted from thwarting disorientation traits such as men’s divorce freedom and defiant homicide.

  6. "The . . . correlation of thwarting disorientation situations and TD suicide [should] exceed [that between] thwarting disorientation situations and non TD suicide cases" (356)Krauss, Herbert H. - Cross-cultural study of the thwarting disorientation theory of suicide, 1968 - 2 Variables

    Authors suggest that suicide is more likely to occur in contexts where an individual's social ties are threatened, weakened, or broken, causing social dislocation (thwarting-disorientation contexts). Results support this hypothesis.

  7. "Suicide frequency frequently varies as a function of social development. . . . Low frequency of suicide is most often associated with low societal development, high rates of suicide occur most frequently in cultunits with a medium degree of complexity" (159, 163)Krauss, Herbert H. - Social development and suicide, 1970 - 2 Variables

    This study examines the relationship between social complexity and frequency of suicide. Empirical analysis suggests a positive association between these variables. The author discusses the usefulness of Durkheimian and thwarting disorientation theories in interpreting the findings.

  8. "The thwarting disorientation contexts associated with individual suicides should be the same as the thwarting disorientation situations scored present for the society" (354)Krauss, Herbert H. - Cross-cultural study of the thwarting disorientation theory of suicide, 1968 - 2 Variables

    Authors suggest that suicide is more likely to occur in contexts where an individual's social ties are threatened, weakened, or broken, causing social dislocation (thwarting-disorientation contexts). Results support this hypothesis.

  9. "More suicides should take place in thwarting disorientation contexts than non-thwarting disorientation contexts" (354)Krauss, Herbert H. - Cross-cultural study of the thwarting disorientation theory of suicide, 1968 - 2 Variables

    Authors suggest that suicide is more likely to occur in contexts where an individual's social ties are threatened, weakened, or broken, causing social dislocation (thwarting-disorientation contexts). Results support this hypothesis.

  10. "There should be a positive correlation between the total number of suicides recorded and the number of thwarting disorientation situations scored present for each society" (354)Krauss, Herbert H. - Cross-cultural study of the thwarting disorientation theory of suicide, 1968 - 2 Variables

    Authors suggest that suicide is more likely to occur in contexts where an individual's social ties are threatened, weakened, or broken, causing social dislocation (thwarting-disorientation contexts). Results support this hypothesis.
