Suicide attempts and DSI sum scores of 532 subjects

Description

Various personality and clinical psychological characteristics were assessed as part of an online-study preventing suicide. To identify persons at risk for attempting suicide, various demographic and clinical characteristics were assessed. Depressive Symptom Inventory - Suicidality Subscale (DSA-SS) sum scores and past suicide attempts from 532 subjects are included as a demonstration set to calculate optimal cutpoints. Two additional demographic variables (age, gender) are also included to test for group differences.
