    Sad Highest Suicide Rate in New Zealand, Finland and Iceland

    New Zealand women, aged 15-24, had the most number of suicides among 29 OECD member countries, followed by Japan and Finland, in 2008 - the latest figures available.

    New Zealand males aged 15-24 had the third highest suicide rate in the OECD, behind Iceland and Finland.

    The stats were released today by the Mental Health Commission in a report on mental health and addiction in New Zealand.

    The commission said there were 11.2 suicide deaths per 100,000 New Zealanders in 2008, down from 15.1 in 1998 -- placing the country toward towards the middle of the OECD table.

    Interesting stats, although I'm not too sure what can be inferred from them
