Report: Suicide Rate Up For Middle-Ages Ohioans
A new report shows that the suicide rate among middle-aged Ohio residents has risen by more than 41 percent.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the report on Thursday.
It shows that between 1999 and 2010, suicides among people between 35 and 64 years old increased nationwide by a rate of 28 percent.
Ohio’s rate increased by 41.5 percent. That’s the 15th biggest increase in the nation and higher than most neighboring states.
Wyoming had the biggest increase at 78.8 percent, Maine the lowest at 6.6 percent.
No state experienced a decrease.
The report says possible contributing factors to the increase include the economic downtown in the U.S. and the increasing availability of prescription drugs.
Other stress factors cited were split families, aging parents and health problems.
