When Franklin Delano Roosevelt assumed office as President of the United States on March 4, 1933, nearly a quarter of the nation's workforce, almost 13 million people, were out of work and had no hope of finding work. In some parts of the country, fully half of the workforce could not find jobs. Factories were idle and farmers' fields were plowed under. In New York City, the suicide rate rose from 13.7 per 100 000 in 1926 to 21.3 per 100 000 in 1932; the rate was 17.4 per 100 000 nationally.1(p15)
