The Demographic Structure of the Indian Society

Question

What does Emile Durkheim state in a report after survey of different countries in the world?

Answer

Mr. Durkheim had explained wide variations in suicide rates across different countries and suggested that enumeration of death rate or rate of suicide (i.e. number of suicides per 100,000 population) had to be explained by social causes even though each particular instance of suicide may have involved reasons specific to that individual or his/her circumstances in order to arrive at true data.
