Where do Suicides Occur?

About three-quarters of suicide incidents occur at home. Most (85%) die at the scene and never make it to the hospital (NVISS data).

Suiciderates are highest in rural areas, in the west (excluding California)and, to a lesser extent, in parts of the south and northern New England (WISQARS data).
