What does this paragraph mean?

"It should also be noted that the mass suicides of financial professionals (jumping from office buildings or hanging) of 1929 are a long-standing Urban Legend only about twenty people killed themselves immediately after the Crash and about one hundred in all. 23,000 people did kill themselves in the first year though."

So, how many people killed themselves as a result of the Depression? 100 or 23,000?
