Supplementary notes
* In the United Kingdom, suicide is defined as deaths given an underlying cause of intentional self-harm or injury/poisoning of undetermined intent..
In 2016 the definition of suicide has been modified to include deaths from intentional self-harm in 10-14 year old children in addition to deaths from intentional self-harm and events of undetermined intent in people aged 15 and over. Data from previous years has been revised to reflect this change.
