This indicator measures the proportion of the population that committed or attempted suicide. The crude and adjusted annual prevalence of suicide or suicide attempts for residents aged 10 and older was measured for ten calendar years. The most recent event in the calendar year period (suicide or suicide attempt) is counted, with region of residence assigned and age calculated at the time of the event.
