What is sacred to you? The answer to this question will vary depending on who you ask. Weber saw that those who committed to pursuing economic gain are less likely to be tied to a religion. When looking at the groups in our suicide analysis, white families are at the top of the chart when it comes to wealth and at the bottom when it comes to associating with a religion. When looking at our statistics it is clear that white males and white females are at the top of the suicide list; coincidence? I think not. These other groups in the statistics are usually a part of a smaller community and involved in a society where mechanical solidarity is present. When something goes wrong they have more of a support system and something to fall back on. On the other hand those who aren’t a part of a religion may feel a lack of integration into a social group, and are more likely to commit egoistic suicide. That same group prone to commit egoistic suicide is the same group who would likely answer my opening question with “Money” or “Success”.
