According to a new study by the CDCís National Center for Health Statistics : The rate of suicides in the US has gone up over the past 15 years ó for almost everyone. The percentage of overall deaths attributable to suicide was 24 percent higher in 2014 than it was in 1999 for everyone under the age of 75.
The numbers, gathered from the CDC's data on causes of death for 1999 and 2014, speak to a larger mental health issue beyond suicide, argues study author Sally Curtin, a statistician at the National Center for Health Statistics. "Percentage wise, some groups had more [increases] than others, but the rise was broad-based." And this study may not show the true size of the phenomenon ó it only looked at suicide deaths, not attempts. "Obviously, the public health issue of suicide is a lot bigger than the death," said Curtin. "For every death you have a lot more attempts and hospitalizations." Thatís not the only limitation, either ó many suicide deaths may have been misclassified as something else.
The women most at risk, the data showed, were ages 45 to 64; their risk of suicide almost doubled since 1999.
The study authors didnít say why more people are dying by suicide, and some experts say there isn't enough research yet to explain the changes.
Well isn't it obvious, it's signs of the last days, this will definitely get from bad to worse.
