ABSTRACT
The article analyzes the structure and dynamics of suicide attempts in Ivanovo, Russia. The authors note the tendency for suicides to increase in the region. Findings of the study make it possible to discern not only the general social factors accounting for suicide but also the specific sources of higher rates of suicide in Ivanovo. They reveal that the half-destroyed economy and the backward social infrastructure of the region, its weak market mechanisms, and low standard of living of its people represent the most important conditions for creating the socioeconomic foundation of the ever rising wave of acts of suicide.
