It is a significant statistic here, that in times of severe drought the incidence of adult male single vehicle accidents spikes up. Well insured farm owners, who have high speed collisions on country roads with large trees. Desperate men doing their final act to provide for their families.
The other one is attention seeking teenage girls who ingest very large amounts of paracetamol, and are found tragically sprawled across their beds. As planned, get found and have their stomachs pumped out. However as not planned, if not found soon enough are then told that they have ruined their liver, and unless a suitable donor is found will die anyway in about two months.



Of course the most common method of known suicides is hanging.

You make a very valid point about the teenaged girls using poisening. Just like wrist cutting, it is an attempt to express their angst rather than to end their lives.

And what happened to suicide rates when gas ovens were phased out in favor of electrical ones? Or how often do people who manage to survive typically lethal methods of suicide go on to successfully commit suicide?

You mean people who commit suicide by shooting themselves multiple times in the back of the head?
We call that Arkanicide and cause to investigate con]nections to the Clintons.

I do recall reading something about suicide rates decreasing in England when they made the transition from gas ovens to electric. It would be interesting to see some actual statistics.

I actually found a credible study.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC478945/

The reduction in total suicides was not as profound as often cited.


However; it would appear that the British have finally figured out how to hang themselves.

On a more serious note, actual research in the US confirms that increased availability of firearms correlates with higher rates of suicide by gun but any connection to suicide by any means is tenuous.
