It is worthy to note that young immigrants were only 11 percent of the total population of that age group in Sweden. The suicide rate for native young Swedes was only 3.2 per 100 000, whereas for young immigrants the suicide rate was 30 per 100 000.
(From an interview published in the last issue of Revansch, the journal of the The Swedish National Association for Social and Mental Health (RSMH) "Unga invandrare toppar självmordsstatistik". Article by Östen Hannmyhr).
The interview was conducted after the publication of my article in Dagens Nyheter "Suicides increases strongly among young immigrants" (in Swedish).
