71. The Swiss have the highest suicide rate by far in Europe.
Edited on Wed Sep-09-09 12:20 PM by AlbertCat
This is because of gun laws??? Prove that!

Besides, I thought Finland had the highest suicide rate. But I'm not sure.

**********

I looked it up at the World Health Org. suicide rates per 100,000

Switzerland Males 26.5 Females 10.0

Finland M 34.6 F 10.9

And then there's

Russian Federation M 70.6 F 11.9

Even France is close to the Swiss... M 26.1 F 9.4
and Belgium has more M 29.4 F 10.7

And the Balkan countries are all higher than Switzerland.


Care to explain how gun laws correlate with these statistics? I mean since we know nothing about what we're talking about.... :eyes:



Oh BTW

USA M 17.6 F 4.1
