Abstract

Data were obtained on the number of social protests in the Netherlands for the period 1975 to 1989. The number of social protests was associated with suicide rates and with other social variables, but less consistently with homicide rates. However, variables such as the unemployment rate were more powerful predictors of the suicide rate during this period. Suggestions were made for deriving an index of social distress by year for the Netherlands.
