HERNANDEZ MANDADO, Pedro. Endemic channel and potential life years lost in suicide in Camaguey 1980-95. AMC [online]. 1998, vol.2, n.1. ISSN 1025-0255.

The corresponding technic was applied for elaborating the annual endemic channel using the method of inframaximal and supraminimal values measuring from the monthly rate per year, which proves an increase of suicides in August and September with a decrease in February, and finally, the potential life years lost by suicides in the overall period and as annual mean.
