    age, severe mental illness, ect.

    I wonder why you did that...

    Oddly, we see the same thing with people trying to downplay military suicides in theater, too.  

    They also point out that the rate is lower than it is for the population in general, while refusing to make actual apples to apples comparisons.

    •  Conspiracy theory? (0+ / 0-)

      Not hardly.

      I did considerable searching and the WHO numbers were the best I could find. There were no numbers I could locate which broke suicide rates up into categories such as mental illness or the like.

      There were some studies which compared rates for men vs. women, rural vs. urban and groupings by age. The groupings by age were mostly for the US, I couldn't find any for worldwide studies.

      If you can locate better numbers which identify causes such as mental illness, please share them. I'd honestly like to see them.
