Decline in Youth Suicide Rate from '97-'07
Health Month, and over the next several weeks, kidsdata.org
will release a number of measures of children's emotional well
being in California, from depression to school connectedness
to bullying. This week, kidsdata.org's statewide expansion continues
with the addition of statewide data for another key measure
of emotional well being - youth
suicides and self-inflicted injuries. These newly
available data, covering the years 1995 to 2007, are available
by age, gender, and race/ethnicity, making it easy to pinpoint
trends and disparities across California.
Kidsdata.org is a public service sponsored
by the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children's Health. You
can use these data, as well as related measures of emotional
and behavioral health, in reports, presentations, proposals,
advocacy work, program planning and other efforts. Data on more
topics will be phased
in over the next several months.
