The
first random sampling population study that replicated the Bell & Weinberg
(1978)
results was published by Bagley and Tremblay (1997).
Results are given below. From 1998 to 2000, more studies (with control
samples, see next page) would be published and they would all confirm the
higher risk of homosexual male youth for attempting suicide, compared to
their heterosexual counterparts.

"Homo/Bi" 
"Hetero" 
More At Risk 
U.S.A. (White Males to age 17) Mean Age = 36 years 
n = 575 GB males 
n = 282 Heterosexual Males 
(Estimated) 
U.S.A. (White Males to age 21) Mean Age = 36 years 
n = 575 GB males 
n = 282 Heterosexual Males 
(95% CI: OR = 3.6<14.9<61.6 (Estimated) 
U.S.A. (White Males to age 25) Mean Age = 36 years 
n = 575 GB males 
n = 282 Heterosexual Males 
(95% CI: OR = 3.0<6.7<14.6 (Estimated) 
(Bell & Weinberg, 1978 Sample) U.S.A. White & Black Males  lifetime  Mean Age = 36 years 
n = 683 GB males 
n = 337 Heterosexual Males 
(95% CI: OR = 3.8<7.4<14.3 (Estimated) 
Canada (Suicide Attempt) GB Males = 62.5% of attempters. Age Range = 18  27 (Mean 22.7) 
n = 82 10.9% of Sample Homo/Bi Males 
n = 668 89.1% of Sample Hetero. Males 
(95% CI: OR = 3.4<14.4<61.4) (Estimated) 
Canada (SelfHarm, includes attempters) GB Males = 26.0% of males in "selfharm" category. Age Range = 18  27 (Mean 22.7) 
n = 82 10.9% of Sample Homo/Bi Males 
n = 668 89.1% of Sample Hetero. Males 
(95% CI: OR = 1.6<3.2< 6.3) Estimated 
Statistical Estimates: Often enough published studies contain sufficient data permitting a further statistical analysis of the data, such as determining Odds Ratios for the reported results, or for a subset of the sample for which results were reported. These results, however, are "estimates," or a close approximation of what the values would be had they been generated from the actual data sets.
