New National Suicide Statistics at a Glance

(CDC)
by CDC
Updated: Oct 7th 2009

Suicide is the 11th leading cause of death among all Americans. Each year, more than 33,000 people ages 10 years and older take their own lives. In addition, more than 385,000 people 10 years and older are treated in emergency departments for nonfatal self-harm injuries every year. CDC works to prevent suicidal behavior and help all Americans to live healthier and more fulfilling lives. Monitoring and tracking trends in suicide across the United States provides critical data to help prevent the problem.

CDC’s new National Suicide Statistics at a Glance provides national statistics on suicide and suicidal behavior. These data can help public health officials, researchers, practitioners and the public to describe and monitor suicide trends and to develop and evaluate prevention programs and strategies. Together we can create communities in which all Americans are safe from violence, and are able to reach their full potential.
