NVDRS Special Report - Deaths from Suicide: A Look at 18 States
Deaths from Suicide: A Look at 18 States
This special report focuses on death by suicide using 2013 and 2014 data from 18 states participating in the National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS). The report provides an overview of deaths from violence in the U.S., a detailed look at deaths by suicide nationally (see infographic) and among states — including circumstances surrounding suicide deaths in various demographic groups — and an exploration of similarities and differences in violent deaths among the 18 states.
The 18 states included in this report completed NVDRS data collection for 2013 and 2014 and submitted these data to CDC for compilation in the annual NVDRS Restricted Access Database (RAD), a de-identified, multi-state, case-level micro dataset prepared by the CDC for use by researchers and other investigators. These states are Alaska, Colorado, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Utah, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
