Data confidence level: Rating_circle_solid  Rating_circle_solid  Rating_circle_solid  Rating_circle_solid  Rating_circle_solid  


This FACT indicates the rate of suicides per 100,000 people in each state.

Suicide is here defined as the deliberate taking of one's life. To be classified as a suicide, a death must be recognised as being due to unnatural causes. External causes of death are required to be examined by a coroner, who investigates both the mechanism by which a person died, and the intention of the injury (whether accidental, intentional self-harm or assault). For a death to be deemed a suicide, it must be established by coronial inquiry that the death resulted from a deliberate act of the deceased with the intention of ending his or her own life.

The indicator is expressed as deaths per hundred thousand mid year population, period 2012-2016.
