Using the data derived from causes of death statistics, this publication presents a time series for suicides from 1921, and highlights trends in suicide death rates by age and sex from 1921 to 1998. A detailed analysis of suicide data by age and sex is carried out for suicides in the 20-year period from 1979 to 1998. Although the publication has a national focus, it also presents suicide data for States and Territories, capital cities, other urban and rural areas. Trends in suicide death rates are examined according to the method used, marital status, international trends and multiple causes of death.
