What are the recent trends? Facts:
There were 6,708 suicides in the UK and ROI in 2013.
In 2013, 6,233 suicides were registered in the UK. Suicides correspond to a rate of 11.9 per 100,000 (19.0 per 100,000 for men and 5.1 per 100,000 for women).
The male suicide rate is the highest since 2001. The suicide rate among men aged 45-59, 25.1 per 100,000, is the highest for this group since 1981.
Male suicides in Wales rose by 23 per cent between 2012 and 2013. The rate for males (26.1 per 100,000) is at its highest since 1981.
Scotland and Northern Ireland show higher suicide rates in general for all persons, males and females. However, rates are not necessarily directly comparable.
Unlike the trend in the UK as a whole and other constituent nations, the suicide rate in Scotland has declined since 2007.
Rates in the Republic of Ireland have fluctuated more than in the UK in recent years, but have declined in the last two years.
The recent increase in the UK is not surprising, given the context of a challenging economic environment and its social impact.
