Australian Demographics and Suicide Statistics

Divorced men and women have the highest suicide rates, married people the lowest, but rates are higher for men than for women in all categories.

I am still doing house-keeping stuff at Fathers for Life and came across this web page that is a bit dated: Australian Demographics and Suicide Statistics

This is one of the graphics with suicide statistics presented on that web page.

Australian Suicide Cases 1998

Australian Suicide Cases 1998

The information in the graphs contained in that page is still good, but if you wish to use it in any discussions or debates, data from somewhere closer to 2013 would be better than data from 1998.

Maybe someone from Australia could point out a reputable source of such information that could be used to make the information contained in the page more current.

Is anyone willing and capable to help out with that?

  2. The web page that is the topic of this discussion thread has been updated, but it is still not up-to-date with respect to bringing it into line with the most recent suicide- and demographic information for Australia.

    I added a preamble and links to archived versions of some web pages to serve instead of the links that have gone dead over the years. The good thing about making thse changes is that you can now access to archive versions of reports or web pages that the Australian government no longer wants you to see.

    Walter H. Schneider to Warren Gibson: Yes, to my great sorrow, I must agree. Most definitely, wrt suicide statistics (and very probably wrt other social indicators as well), Australians are being looked at by their government as being mushrooms. They are kept in the dark and are being fed B.S..
    Here is the proof of that: http://www.ausstats.abs.gov.au/ausstats/subscriber.nsf/LookupAttach/4102.0Data+Cubes-26.09.121/$File/41020_health_indicators_2012.xls
