Description

National coverage

Dit is een dataset die landelijk dekkend is. De data heeft betrekking op heel Nederland.

Close

This table contains the number of victims of suicide arranged by marital status, method, motives, age and sex. They represent the number deaths by suicide in the resident population of the Netherlands.

The figures in this table are equal to the suicide figures in the causes of death statistics, because they are based on the same files. The causes of death statistics do not contain information on the motive of suicide. For the years 1950-1995, this information is obtained from a historical data file on suicides. For the years 1996-now the motive is taken from the external causes of death (Niet-Natuurlijke dood) file. Before the 9th revision of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD), i.e. for the years 1950-1978, it was not possible to code "jumping in front of train/metro". For these years 1950-1978 "jumping in front of train/metro" has been left empty, and it has been counted in the group "other method".

Relative figures have been calculated per 100 000 of the corresponding population group. The figures are calculated based on the average population of the corresponding year.

Data available from: 1950

Status of the figures: The figures up to and including 2022 are final.
