Front Cover
Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2000 - Australia - 41 pages
Using the data derived from causes of death statistics, this publication presents a time series for suicides from 1921, and highlights trends in suicide death rates by age and sex from 1921 to 1998. A detailed analysis of suicide data by age and sex is carried out for the suicides registered in the 20-year period from 1979 to 1998. Although the publication has a national focus, it also presents the suicide data for geographic areas: States and Territories and capital cities, other urban and rural areas. Trends and differentials in suicide deaths are examined according to several background characteristics such as marital status, country of birth, employment status and broad occupational categories.
