Drs. Schernhammer and Colditz concluded that since many studies were conducted more than a generation ago, there was a need for more recent studies. We recently published a nationwide study from Norway covering the period 1960–2000 (4). A total of 98 suicides among male physicians and 13 suicides among female physicians were studied. Suicide rates among physicians increased from the 1960s to the 1980s. However, in the 1990s, the rates were significantly lower than in the 1980s among male physicians, other university graduates, and the general population. Nevertheless, in the 1990s, physicians still had a higher suicide rate than other university graduates and the general population, both among men (43.0 per 100,000 person-years; 95% confidence interval [CI]=35.3–52.5) and women (26.1 per 100,000 person-years; 95% CI=15.1–44.9) compared to 23.5 per 100,000 person-years (95% CI=23.1–24.0) and 8.0 per 100,000 person-years (95% CI=7.8–8.3) among male and female nongraduates, respectively.
