22. There's also a cultural aspect that we need to know.
In the US, the gun is the most popular form of suicide. In San Francisco jumping from the bridge is quite the thing. In Japan they have student suicides due to the pressure and bullying.

In the US jumping from buildings or bridges is not too common, but in Hong Kong it is common.

In Germany suicide by trains is common.

In the pacific islands, poisoning is responsible for the most suicides. Farming communities see the use of Pesticides for suicide.

Access to the device for suicide could be a factor. There my not be many tall buildings on a small Pacific island, and guns are few, but there is pesticides available to anyone who can purchase or steal them.
