Teen Suicide Deaths, U.S.

Suicide was the 11th leading cause of death in the United States. It was the 8th leading cause of death for males, and 19th leading cause of death for females.  The total number of suicide deaths was 30,622.  The 2001 age-adjusted rate** was 10.7/100,000 or 0.01%.  1.3% of total deaths were from suicide. By contrast, 29% were from diseases of the heart, 23% were from malignant neoplasms (cancer), and 6.8% were from cerebrovascular disease (stroke) – the three leading causes.  Suicides outnumbered homicides (20,308) by 3 to 2.  There were twice as many deaths due to suicide than deaths due to HIV/AIDS (14,175).

Child abuse has increased 134% since 1980 and is now considered a worldwide epidemic. The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.
