List of OECD countries by suicide rate


List of OECD countries by suicide rate

The following is a List of suicide rates for OECD member nations according to data from the World Health Organization in which a country's rank is determined by its total rate of suicides. Male and female suicide rates are out of total male population and total female population, respectively (e.g. total male population divided by total number of male suicides). The total rate of suicides is based on the total number of suicides divided by the total population rather than merely the average of the male and female suicide rates, because the gender ratio in many countries is not 1:1. "Year" refers to the most recent year that data was available for a particular country.
