Footnotes:
1) The National Statistics definition of suicide is given in the 'Suicide definition' tab.
2) Figures are for persons aged 15 years and over.
3) Age-standardised suicide rates per 100,000 population, standardised to the European Standard Population. Age-standardised rates are used to allow comparison between populations which may contain different proportions of people of different ages.
4) Comparisons between suicide rates for 2002 to 2010, and 2011 should be treated with caution, as rates across the two time periods are not directly comparable due to the planned revisions to population estimates. More details can be found in the section 'Population estimate revisions and their impact on suicide statistics for 2002 to 2011' in the statistical bulletin.
5) The lower and upper confidence limits have been provided. These form a confidence interval, which is a measure of the statistical precision of an estimate and shows the range of uncertainty around the estimated figure. Calculations based on small numbers of events are often subject to random fluctuations. As a general rule, if the confidence interval around one figure overlaps with the interval around another, we cannot say with certainty that there is more than a chance difference between the two figures.
6) Deaths of non-residents are included in figures for the UK.
7) Figures are for deaths registered in each calendar year.
