Age-Adjusted Death Rate due to Suicide

Value: 13.8 deaths/100,000 population
Measurement
Period:
2009-2011
Location: County : Marin

What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the age-adjusted death rate per 100,000 population due to suicide.
Why this is important: 
Suicide is a major, preventable public health problem. In 2007, suicide was the 11th leading cause of death in the United States. Based on 2007 age-adjusted death rates, men were nearly four times more likely to die of suicide than females, and white individuals were over two times more likely to die of suicide than black or Hispanic individuals. Older Americans are disproportionately likely to die by suicide. An estimated eight to 25 attempted suicides occur for every suicide death.
The Healthy People 2020 national health target is to reduce the suicide rate to 10.2 deaths per 100,000 population.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 57 California counties.
