Few studies have focused on the research of male suicidality. The World Health Organization estimated in 2012 the global male: female suicidality ratio to be 1:9. Some of the most often researched factors in relation to suicidality are mental health problems and especially depression. Other factors that are being suggested as possible contributors to male suicide are stress and stressful events. Psycho-social factors such as social relationships, impulsiveness and availability of suicide means have been shown to be significant, but have a different impact on male suicidality versus female. It was also found that suicidal ideation is seven times higher in the elderly.
