There is a strong relationship between depression and suicide rates. In America, suicide rates are higher in less populated, less wealthy areas. Firearms are often the means to end one’s life. Men are four times as likely to commit suicide in America. It’s a similar ratio (3.5 to 1) around the world. Insider Monkey, your source for free insider trading data, gathered the suicide rates from the World Health Organization and ranked countries based on their suicide rates. Not all countries report suicide rates, and not all reports are accurate (most countries under-report). As a result, the list of countries with the least suicide rates is very inaccurate, and we won’t be presenting it.
Here are the 20 most depressed and suicidal countries in the World:
|Rank||Country||Suicide rate per 100,000|
|10||REPUBLIC OF KOREA||21.85|
United States ranks 42nd and has a lower suicide rate than do the following countries: China (24), Czech Republic (27), Sweden (28), Cuba (32), Denmark (34), Germany (35), Portugal (38), Norway (40), Canada (41). Australia, Argentina, Spain, Italy, Greece, and Israel each have a lower suicide rate than America.
