ABSTRACT
Replicating the majority finding from prior related studies of European countries, regional IQ estimates and suicide rates in Italy were positively correlated; the association was retained with application of controls for regional affluence. Directions for further inquiry into aggregate-level associations of cognitive-ability indicators and suicide risk within nations are discussed.
