Abstract To investigate the impact of national and religious events on the rate of parasuicide, a comparison was made between the number of reported parasuicides during the month of Ramadan and the month before and after Ramadan in Jordan, for the years from 1986 to 1991. Significantly fewer parasuicides were reported during Ramadan than the month preceding it and the month that follows Ramadan. The findings confirm previous observations that national events reduce the rate of parasuicide, but the protective effect does not persist into the month that follows Ramadan.
