Suicides Outnumber Homicides in Central Indiana

Service: Analytical studies

Research Area: Public Safety

In Central Indiana, accidents account for more than 70 percent of external deaths, and suicide is nearly twice as common as homicide. While suicide and homicide rates have remained stable in the region for the overall population, analysis by race, age, and gender shows that risk varies dramatically. Policy makers should consider these risk variations when allocating limited public funds for suicide and homicide prevention.
