Suicide by Age

 

Between 2008 and 2017, suicide rates increased among all age groups. In recent years, suicide rates among adults between the ages of 25 and 44 have surpassed suicide rates among older adults (65+).

Although suicide is one of the top four causes of death among people in the age groups between 10 and 44, the numbers of suicide deaths are higher in the age groups in the 45 to 65+ range.
