Suicide (rate) in Mauritius 2008 figures

Suicide (rate) in Mauritius

According to a document on the Wold Health Organisation website, in 2008, 84 persons committed suicide in Mauritius with 24 of them aged 25-34 years old,15 were aged 55 to 64, 14 aged 35 to 44 and 13 aged 15 to 24 years old. Out of the total of 84, 72 were males.

It is very interesting to note that the suicide rate (or taux de suicide in french)  (ie the number of suicide per 100,000 inhabitants of the country) which stood in 1955 at 8.9, 1960 at 3.1, 1965 at 3.5, 1970 at 1.7, 1975 at 7.8, 1980 at 2.5, 1985 at 10.6, 1990 at 14.1, 1995 at 13.5, 2000 at 11.9, 2005 at 8.5 and 2008 at 6.8. There has therefore been a drop in the suicide rate over the last 10 years even if it is worth mentioning that the suicide rate among the males is 11.9 well above that of women at 1.9.

Figures for later years are not yet available.
