In Table 2 of the report “Suicide Rates by Major Occupational Group — 17 States, 2012 and 2015,” on page 1255, some percentages were calculated using records with Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) codes as the denominator rather than all suicide decedents aged 16–64 years. The corrected Table 2 follows. The ranking of occupational groups by suicide rate is unaffected by this correction. On page 1254, the first sentence of the second complete paragraph should have read, “In both 2012 and 2015, the largest percentage of male suicides (15%–16% of decedents) occurred among those in the Construction and Extraction group (SOC 47) (Table 2); the largest percentage of female suicides in both years occurred among decedents with unpaid occupations (29%). The largest percentage of female suicides among classifiable occupations occurred in the Office and Administrative Support group (SOC 43) in both years (9% and 10%).”
