A new study finds that men in the US are more likely to kill themselves than women. The study published online today in the journal Psychological Science, found that people aged between 40 and 59 in Florida are twice as likely to commit suicide as people in their 20s and 30s.
They were more likely than their peers to have been shot, shot at, or stabbed, according to the study.
The researchers say that this is likely because men have more time and energy to deal with the psychological and physical toll of suicide.
They also say the risk of suicide is higher among younger men.
While suicide rates have declined over the last decade, the research also found that suicide has become more prevalent among older men.
The researchers found that those aged 50 to 64 were twice as commonly the most likely to be shot by a woman.
They were also three times as likely as older men to be stabbed.
In the US, there were an estimated 10,400 suicides in 2016, according the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
This was almost triple the number of suicides in 1999, according to the CDC.
However, this study does not include people who have attempted suicide.
Dr Robert Klemko, a sociologist at the University of Pittsburgh, said the findings should help to change attitudes about suicide among the general public.
“I think there’s a lot of people out there who are thinking that suicide is not something that is necessarily to be taken lightly,” he said.
“We know that the number one predictor of suicide and other mental health problems is socioeconomic status.
It’s important to understand that, because the suicide rate is high among those who are not financially well off.”
Researchers also looked at factors associated with suicide, such as the likelihood of being unemployed and living in poverty.
They found that being unemployed was linked to the number and rate of suicide attempts.
“It’s really important to recognize that not all suicide attempts are the same,” said Dr Klemkos.
He said there are different ways to commit the act.
“Suicide is not a choice.
Suicide is a consequence of an underlying condition, and there are some conditions that make it more likely that people will attempt suicide.”
The researchers did not know how many suicides there were in the state, but said they were concerned about the rising numbers.
“The problem is we have a lot more people who are at risk for suicide, and we have more of them in our community, which means more of us have a high suicide rate,” Dr Kymko said.
