The 34 OECD member states (as of 2010).
A graph of country totals from the table (suicides per 100,000 people per year, with selected labels).

The following is a List of suicide rates for OECD member nations according to data from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development in which a country's rank is determined by its total rate of suicides.

Methodology[edit]

Male and female suicide rates are out of total male population and total female population, respectively (e.g. total number of male suicides divided by total male population). The total rate of suicides is based on the total number of suicides divided by the total population rather than merely the average of the male and female suicide rates, because the gender ratio in most countries is not 1:1. Year refers to the most recent year that data was available for a particular country.
