U.S. Suicide Rates for Teens and Young Adults
The graph below shows the rate of suicide deaths among 15-24 year-olds in each U.S. state between 1999 and 2014. The figures are per 100,000 population, so a rate of 8.0 would mean that for every 100,000 15-24 year olds in the state, 8 of them died by suicide in that year. Some regions of interest have been highlighted (read the related blog post), but you can highlight any line by mousing over it.
