A common definition of suicides is used across Great Britain. See the "Things you need to know" section for more information.
Rates are expressed per 100,000 population and standardised to the 2013 European Standard Population.
Deaths of non-residents are included in figures for England and Wales.
Suicide rates were calculated assuming all deaths where a hard-to-code narrative verdict meant that the death been coded as an accidental hanging (ICD-10 codes W75–W76) or accidental poisoning (ICD-10 codes X40–X49) were intentional self-harm. These deaths were then added to the number of suicides in order to calculate simulated suicide rates.
