The sample constituted total 120 adult out of which 60 were from male (30 joint family and 30 nuclear family) and 60 from female (30 joint family and 30 nuclear family). The data was collected from normal population of Patan District. The data was scored, analyzed as per the manual. ‘F’ test was being calculated. The result showed that (1) There is no significant difference between the mean score of the suicidal tendency among male and female, (2) There is significant difference between the mean score of the suicidal tendency among adult of joint family and nuclear family. Therefore, it could be said that, the adult of nuclear family group is having more suicidal tendency than adult of joint family group and (3) There is significant difference between interactive effect of the mean score of the suicidal tendency among gender and types of family. Therefore, it could be said that, the male of nuclear family group is having more suicidal tendency than male of joint family group.
