We compared the incidence of suicide in a 4-week study period before eclipse day with the incidence of suicide during the corresponding 4 weeks in a 15-year comparison period. The latter yielded 2,269 suicides that occurred in Austria during the 4 weeks before August 11 in the years 1984–1998. The standardized incidence ratios, i.e., the observed numbers of suicides in the study period in relation to the expected numbers based on the comparison period, with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) (4), for weeks 4, 3, 2, and 1 before eclipse day were 0.69 (CI=0.46–0.99), 0.68 (CI=0.42–0.97), 0.75 (CI=0.50–1.08), and 0.62 (CI=0.40–0.94), respectively. There was no decrease in suicide incidence on eclipse day (standardized incidence ratio=0.99 (CI=0.36–2.16). All six suicides on eclipse day were by men and occurred exclusively in the regions crossed by the path of totality, in which unusually large numbers of people gathered. In the weeks after eclipse day, the national suicide incidence did not significantly differ from expected numbers.
