    Is suicide : Material Social Fact or Non Material Social Fact !!
    Suicide is non-material Social Fact according to Durkheim.
    And according to him, non-material Social Facts present a great opportunity for Sociology to expand it's scope.

    Thanks !! But suicidal rates can be empirically established and can be observed and anything which is objective in nature comes under Material Social Fact....right !!

    Borrowing from an online resource -

    Two types of social facts are material and non-material social facts. Material social facts are features of society such as social structures and institutions. These could be the system of law, the economy, church and many aspects of religion, the state, and educational institutions and structures. They could also include features such as channels of communication, urban structures, and population distribution. While these are important for understanding the structures and form of interaction in any society, it is nonmaterial social facts that constitute the main subject of study of sociology.
    Nonmaterial social facts are social facts which do not have a material reality. They consist of features such as norms, values, and systems of morality. Some contemporary examples are the norm of the one to three child family, the positive values associated with family structures, and the negative associations connected to aggression and anger. In Durkheim's terminology, some of these nonmaterial social facts are morality, collective consciousness, and social currents. An example of the latter is Durkheim's analysis of suicide
    .

    Amply explains the difference.
