Increasing of Suicide Rate in America

Sunday, May 8, 2022

It is surprisingly that suicide rate is increasing in recent years and a 30-year high in the USA.

In term of number, the suicide is 29,199 persons in 1999, and almost double (42,773 people) in 2014. Trending is continue until recently.


It is equal to 13 people in 100 thousand population. As reported by Tavernise (2016: U.S. Suicide Rate Surges to a 30-Year High. The New York Times) that increasing of suicide rate occurs in almost:

- all age groups (25 to 64 years old)

- racial (ethnic group)

- and sexes (both male and female).

Quite surprising that suicide rate among the teenage girls (10 to 14 years old) had been three time higher in 2014 than 1999.

Other facts that marriage rate is declining, but divorce rate is increasing. Especially for lower education people. It is believed that divorce may lead to suicide.

Many factors that may cause suicide among others are:

- less education (lower than high school)

- less economic well-being

- hopelessness

- distress due to job lost and financial trouble


Health problems may lead to suicide as well. Several of these problems may include:

- drug overdoses and alcohol poisoning

- liver diseases

- or in-curable chronic diseases.

  1. We are definitely living in stressful and sad times. I had heard how many pre-teen boys who were busy usually with team sports were definitely at high risk during the pandemic. Thanks for the message.

  2. Just this week a local guy whose wife called the police about her husband's talk of suicide, killed himself in his truck when the police approached his parked truck on the freeway. There are no easy answers with this epidemic in mental health.

  16. Yes, this is such sad news and I think the pandemic has contributed to the increase in suicides. Staying indoors for such long periods during lockdown can really cause mental health illness. Troubled times are said to bring out the strength in people but not everyone is born with such inner strength. I do pray people seek out friends and family or even societies when depression hits.
