National Suicide Statistics at a Glance
Smoothed, Age-adjusted Suicide Rates* per 100,000 population, by County, United States, 2000–2006
From 2000–2006, the western US counties, including Alaska, had predominantly high suicide rates. Suicide rates were also high in certain Appalachian counties of Kentucky and West Virginia, southern Oklahoma and northern Florida.
Footnote: *All rates are age-adjusted to the standard 2000 population. Rates based on less than 20 deaths are statistically unreliable and are suppressed (see legend above).
