Those trends apply to almost every segment of the USA population: Suicide rates have increased in 44 states, among all racial and ethnic groups and in every age range except adults older than 75.

In a conference call with reporters on Thursday, Dr. Schuchat and Deborah Stone, the lead author of the C.D.C. analysis, stressed that other factors were critical to preventing suicide.

And the increase in suicides in MA has been blamed on the travails of middle-aged men, who account for the largest number of suicide deaths.

In 1999, then-Surgeon General David Satcher issued a report on the state of mental health in the country and called suicide "a significant public health problem". In the 27 states that use the National Violent Death Reporting System, 54 percent of suicides were by people without a known mental illness.

Because anybody can experience those stresses. However, the fact that so many other factors appeared to contribute to suicide is an important finding. "We are concerned with all aspects of suicide prevention, including access to lethal means, and so we do include that in a comprehensive approach to suicide prevention". The CDC's Vital Signs report notes that the rates of most causes of death have been declining.
