: This is the result of sudden upsurge in socio-economic conditions that results social imparity in identity, values and culture.
Integration and regulation generate the causes of four different social types of suicide: egotistical suicide, stemming from weak integration; altruistic suicide, stemming from excessive integration; anomic suicide
stemming from weak regulation (Durkheim  2006: 325); and finally, the undertheorized fatalistic suicide, stemming from excessive regulation, "committed by those whose future is pitilessly confined," blocking personally fulfilling and socially beneficial life paths (Durkheim  2006: 305; Pearce 2001: 121-123).
He thus defines four types of suicide, such as egoistic suicide, altruistic suicide, anomic suicide
and fatalist suicide.
* Anomic suicide
characterizes modern societies, where economic, political, religious, and, ultimately, moral imbalance favours the propensity to autolysis.
Because of its origin, this last species will be called anomic suicide
Suicidal behavior is also common in societies where there is a low degree of social regulation (leading to anomic suicide
(2,4,8,15,16,24) All 3 Durkheimian types of suicides occur in the elderly--a sense of isolation leads to "egoistic suicide", social deregulation and normlessness predispose to "anomic suicide
", and some seniors eliminate themselves to 'unburden' their family (the "altruistic type").
(14) On the second scale, that of moral regulation, lays the other two forms of suicide, the first of which is anomic suicide
, located on the low end.
