The Effect of Country Music on Suicide

Dei ricercatori universitari americani hanno condotto una ricerca che ha portato alla conclusione che esiste una correlazione tra la quantità di musica Country che la gente ascolta in radio e il tasso di suicidi.

E in effetti, i testi, un’allegria guarda…

La ricerca è stata premiata con il Premio ig-nobel per la medicina nel 2004. Lo studio è pubblicato su www.umt.edu

Riporto uno stralcio:

A significant zero-order correlation was found between white suicide rates and country music (r=.54, p<.05). The greater the airtime given to country music, the greater the white suicide rate. The black suicide rate was not related to country music (r=.11, p>.05). Country music was also significantly related to gun availability (r=.50, p<.05). Metropolitan areas high in country music also are high in opportunity for suicide. Country music was also related to divorce (r=.51, p<.05) and to southern location (r=.26, p<.05). It was not, however, related to structural poverty, indicating support for the massification thesis. Other factors related to white suicide were divorce, southern location, and the structural poverty index
