Most/Least Suicidal Person

tat-2Who is the most suicidal person?  By contrast, who is the least likely to commit suicide?  When looking into the statistics to reflect this, I have noticed that these rates are hardly correlated to the rates of homicide.  It elicits several questions and, while I am interested in discussing them, I just want to present the evidence of suicide. There is also the question of attempted suicide and how it is reflected in these stats.  While it is true that women attempt suicide more often than men, it is men that actually commit suicide more often.

It is important to note that, combined, this person’s probability of suicide likely changes drastically.  I am simply providing each category on its own in list form.   With this said, here are the profiles of those people who are least and most likely to commit suicide:

    • Each category had linked sources if you click on them. The ones with numbers are indicating several sources. If you think one deserves more sources, please let me know.

  1. Least likely is female, 5-14 years old and married?! So I am guessing we should interpret the data independently of each other?
