This study examined how deprivation differed by region and the effect those differences had on suicidal ideation among the local population.
Data collected over 10 years (2012-2021) in the Korea Welfare Panel Study were organized into 3 categories: metropolitan, city, and rural. A panel analysis was conducted on the impact of deprivation indices, socio-demographic characteristics, and life satisfaction on suicidal ideation in each category.
Income, divorce status, family relationship satisfaction, and medical deprivation had a significant impact on suicidal ideation in metropolitan areas, whereas these variables did not have significant effects in rural areas. In other words, income, family, and medical support were more impactful in city areas.
Although the deprivation index was higher in rural areas than in city areas due to an aging population and reduced income levels, the mental health of rural residents was found to be generally better than that of city residents. The possibility that this is related to the strength of relationships within the respective communities should be considered in light of recent discussions on relational welfare.
Korean summary
본 연구는 지역별 박탈수준을 살펴보고 각 지역에서 5개 박탈영역이 자살 생각에 미치는 영향을 조사하였다. 연구결과, 고령화와 소득수준 감소로 농촌지역이 도시지역보다 박탈지수가 높았지만 농촌지역 주민의 자살생각은 도시지역보다 낮은 것으로 나타났다. 이는 최근 관계적 복지에 관한 논의에 비추어 각 지역사회 내의 관계강화와 관련이 있을 가능성을 고려해야 한다.
