Teen suicide rates climbed
at the highest rate in 15 years
in 2004, the Center for Disease
Control and Prevention reported
in a study released last week.
The number of suicides among
people aged 10 to 24 decreased
by 28 percent between 1990 and
2003, but it rebounded by eight
percent in 2004, the most recent
year for which data is available,
the study showed.
According to the report, sui-
cides among females ages 10 to 14
increased by almost 76 percent,
suicide rates among females 15 to
19 increased by about 32 percent
and suicides among males in that
category increased by 9 percent.
