The following is a List of suicide rates for OECD member nations according to data from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development in which a country's rank is determined by its total rate of suicides. The financial crisis of 2008 had significant impact on the suicide rates in many countries that were adversely effected by the banking collapse. As a result, data in the table from prior to 2008 may not be accurate of current conditions and should be used with caution.
Male and female suicide rates are out of total male population and total female population, respectively (e.g. total number of male suicides divided by total male population). The total rate of suicides is based on the total number of suicides divided by the total population rather than merely the average of the male and female suicide rates, because the gender ratio in most countries is not 1:1. Year refers to the most recent year that data was available for a particular country.
