Based on a study of residents of Sacromenta County, CA, suicides occur mostly on Mondays.

I have an interesting theory for this. AshleyMadison.com’s founder Noel Biderman mentioned in his TEDx talk that the site received the maximum signups on Monday mornings because the expectations from life and your partner weren’t met, especially over the weekend. Hence, people opt of dipping in infidelity.

I extend the same logic to suicides. People expect something “miraculous” to happen over the weekend and since it usually doesn’t, they end their lives on Monday.
