UU A Way Of Life ministiry index - Variability of firearm suicide deaths in Major US Metropolitan Areas


  • Number of suicide firearm deaths during 2015-2016 in New York/New Jersey = 1.5/100,00
  • Number of suicide firearm deaths during 2015-2016 in Oklahoma City = 13.5/100,000
  • Number of suicide firearm deaths duing 2015-2016 on average in 50 largest US metropolitan areas = 5.6/100,000
  • Rank of suicide as cause of death in the United States 2015-2016 = 10th
Editor's note: Why would the firearm death rate be 13 times greater in 2015-2016 between New Your/New Jersey and Oklahoma City? What are the factors in Oklahoma that would cause such a difference?
