LONDON--A painful economic recession, rising unemployment and biting austerity may have driven more than 1,000 people in the UK to commit suicide, according to a study published on Wednesday.

The study, a so-called time-trend analysis, that the expected if pre-recession trends have been continued, reflects the actual number of suicides compared to findings elsewhere in Europe, where suicides on the rise.

"This one murky memory after the euphoria of the Olympics from the challenges we face and those, the forthcoming," said David Stuckler, a sociologist at the University of Cambridge and the study led, published in the British medical journal (BMJ).

The analysis showed that between 2008 and 2010, 846 were more suicides among men in England as would have been expected if previous development continued and 155 more in women.

Between 2000 and 2010, each was 10 per cent increase in the number of unemployed with a 1.4 per cent increase in the number of male suicides per year, the study found.

The analysis used data from the national clinical health outcomes and database of the Office of national statistics.

Stuckler, who worked with researchers from Liverpool University and the London School of hygiene and tropical medicine, said while this kind of statistical analysis could not establish a causal link, the power of associations was strong. Its conclusions were reinforced by other indicators of rising mental health problems, stress and anxiety, he added.

Hundreds of anti-austerity have been an own memory of demonstrators in Greece. 77-Year-old former pharmacist himself killed before the Parliament in Athens. In a note he said Government his pension wiped out cuts and robbed him his would. ITV Martin Geissler reported.

He was also the study showed a small reduction in the number of suicides in 2010 that coincided with a slight increase in male employment.

A survey of 300 family doctors, published by the research group insight on Tuesday showed that 76 percent of those polled on the impact of the economic crisis, that they thought that it was said human nutrients leads to more fear, abortions and abuse made alcohol.

Data showed information that the number of prescriptions for antidepressants in England rose foregone by 9.1 percent in 2010 Centre for health and social care this month by the Government.

One in July published according to study by Stuckler, Europe-wide hot from 2007 to 2009 unemployment increased suicide rates such as the financial crisis and drove and pushed income.

The countries that the worst of a severe economic downturn, such as Greece and Ireland taken saw the dramatic rise of suicides.

In the UK, there is little doubt that got harder times. The economy shrank in the last nine months and produces 4.5 percent less than before the economic crisis now.

Public debt is well over 1 trillion pounds and will grow to be with austerity pushed by the Government over 90 percent of GDP.

Many British living standards for 40 years and the crisis hard, had the worst squeeze young people with over 20 percent rising youth unemployment has hit.

'Income, status, meaning'
Stuckler of BMJ study found that the number of unemployed men grew on average across the UK by 25.6 percent annually from 2008 to 2010 an increase linked to an annual increase in the male suicides of 3.6 percent.

"A lot of men's identity and purpose is tied up with a job. "It brings income, status, importance..." Stuckler, said in a telephone interview.

"And there is also a pattern in the United Kingdom, where men are three times more likely to suicide than women, while women tend to report much, become depressed and ask for help."

The World Health Organization estimates that every year almost 1 million people die by suicide-a rate of 16 per 100,000, or one every 40 seconds.

UN health body also estimated for every suicide, there are up to 20 attempted.

New figures published on Tuesday also showed that Europe is closer to recession, facing down pulled by the crippling debt problems 17 States that use the euro.
