Suicide Leading Cause of Violent Death: CDC
Date:5/13/2010

Homicide was second-leading cause, 16-state survey found

THURSDAY, May 13 (HealthDay News) -- A 16-state survey found that suicide was the leading cause of violent death in 2007, followed by homicides, according to a new U.S. report.

While the report does not cover the entire United States, it provides some insights into ways to improve efforts to prevent violent deaths, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"From a prevention strategy, those are areas of opportunity for agencies and community groups to focus on and reduce violent deaths," she said.

Most suicides were among people 45 to 54 years of age, which represents a demographic shift; people over 80 typically have the highest suicide rates. The age shift might be related to problems with mental health, jobs, finances or relationships, the study said.

The findings also highlight the importance of helping people to solve social problems such as substance abuse, and to enhance coping skills to deal with stress in their lives, including health and money problems and difficulties with relationships, the CDC said.

According the report, there were 9,245 suicides in 2007, and 4,563 homicides or deaths due to involvement with the police. The states surveyed were Alaska, Colorado, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin.

The report, Surveillance for Violent Deaths -- National Violent Death Reporting System, 16 States, 2007, was published Thursday as part of the CDC's Morbidity and Mort
