Data Provided By

Definitions: This indicator represents the number of deaths from suicides for teens ages 15 through 19 per 100,000 teens in this age group.

Data Source: National Vital Statistics System (NVSS) Mortality File and U.S. Census Bureau Population Estimates. Data obtained from the Federally Available Data (FAD) Resource Document.

Footnotes: Due to the relatively small number of deaths, total estimates are shown with three-year data. However, trends are mitigated with three-year data where each estimate shares 67% (2/3) of the data with the next estimate. For more information about the mortality file, please see the User's Guide.
