Suicide statistics (FOI)
Suicide statistics (FOI)Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 22 April 2022.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
Total suicide rates for both men and women all age ranges from 1990 till 30/3/2022.
The most recent figures available on suicides are currently for 2019. Data is in arrears as deaths suspected to be by suicide need to have completed the inquest process before the cause of death is confirmed. Statistics on completed suicides in Jersey are published annually by Statistics Jersey in the Jersey Mortality report on www.gov.je. Figures for 2020 are due to be published in September 2022 and figures for 2021 will be published in September 2023.
Due to the small numbers involved, no gender breakdown will be provided. Release of the information requested could negatively impact living relatives or other connected individuals and it is considered that their right to privacy outweighs the public interest supporting the release of the information requested. It is therefore exempt under Article 25 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011.
Annual number of resident deaths from suicide and events of undetermined intent:
|2020||To be published September 2022|
