Statistics by Country for Suicide


advertisement

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Suicide: These statistics are calculated extrapolations of various prevalence or incidence rates against the populations of a particular country or region. The statistics used for prevalence/incidence of Suicide are typically based on US, UK, Canadian or Australian statistics. This extrapolation calculation is automated and does not take into account any genetic, cultural, environmental, social, racial or other differences across the various countries and regions for which the extrapolated Suicide statistics below refer to. As such, these extrapolations may be highly inaccurate (especially for developing or third-world countries) and only give a general indication (or even a meaningless indication) as to the actual prevalence or incidence of Suicide in that region.

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Suicide: The word 'prevalence' of Suicide usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Suicide at any given time (i.e. people with Suicide). The term 'incidence' of Suicide means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Suicide diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Suicide). Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence, but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence. For more information see about prevalence and incidence statistics.



Incidence (annual) of Suicide: 29,199 annual cases of actual suicide in 1999 USA (NVHS Sep 2001)

Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Suicide to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Suicide to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Suicide are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Suicide in any region:
