    This is a discussion thread for the following file:

    US-Suicide

    Suicide Rates for white men and women in the continental US, 1988-1992. Both genders plotted on the same color scale (the rate for women is generally four times less than that for men).



    This data comes from Pickle L.W., Mungiole M., Jones G.K., White A.A., Atlas of United States Mortality. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Publication. No. (PHS) 97-1015. Hyattsville, MD: National Center for Health Statistics, 1996.

    Default Fascinating!

    I've heard the all of the mining and pollution in MT and WY leads to high incidences of mental illness. Some pretty isolated towns out there as well.

    Regarding the last comment... go ask the CDC why they made the map.

    I suppose that if you can see, geographically, where most suicides occur, you may be able to determine if there are environmental factors that may contribute to high suicide rates and subsequently change them. Just a guess.

    It's just a different way of looking at the data. I personally find it interesting.
