National Suicide Statistics
This is an overview of suicide trends and patterns in the United States (US). These graphs can be used by public health officials, researchers, practitioners and the public to better understand the burden of suicide, population subgroups at risk, and the need for effective prevention efforts.
Obtain these data (and more) and create your own graphs through CDC’s WISQARS™ (Web-based Injury Statistics Query and Reporting System). WISQARS™ is an interactive, online database that provides fatal and nonfatal injury, violent death, and cost of injury data from a variety of trusted sources. Need help using WISQARS?
