ARCHIVE - Suicide

Suicide Statistics – archived publications.

Information on suicide statistic is presented on the ScotPHO web pages in a format and structure consistent with other topics on the site, for ease of use. This allows the user quick access to pages on particular aspects, with appropriate links to other suicide pages on the menu and, where appropriate, to other ScotPHO topics etc. It also ensures that the user is always accessing the most up to date data and text.   

During the UK Statistics Authority assessment of compliance with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics in 2013, the ScotPHO ISD team was asked to ensure that the current and historic releases of the suicide webpage content were disseminated in forms that “enable and encourage analysis and re-use”.  Therefore, a series of links is given below to 'reports' created by taking 'snapshots' of the suicide statistics webpages prior to them being overwritten by a new annual publication.

PLEASE TAKE CARE NOT TO ACCESS AN ARCHIVE VERSION IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE MOST RECENT REPORT.

Please note that links within the reports have been disabled to avoid users accessing out-of-date information.  For the latest information please see the relevant live web page.
