This paper examines the effects of political institutions and governance structure on suicide using a balanced panel for 26 Swiss states (cantons) over the period 1980 1998. Our results indicate that stronger popular rights and more fiscal decentralization reduce suicide, while more local autonomy increases it. The effects are not strongly gender-specific. However, we find evidence that the effect of direct legislation is partly transmitted through sub-federal budgets, but not through health sector spending exclusively.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:title>Political institutions and suicide : a regional analysis of Switzerland</dcterms:title> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/12184/1/55_No33_08_07_TWI_RPS_Fischer_Rodriguez_Andres.pdf"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/12184"/> <dc:creator>Rodriguez-Andres, Antonio</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2008</dcterms:issued> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dc:contributor>Rodriguez-Andres, Antonio</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-25T09:43:17Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
