Age and sex suicide rates in the Eastern Mediterranean Region based on global burden of disease estimates for 2000
Rezaeian, M. ( 2007 )
Abstract

Suicide was estimated to be the 25th leading cause of death in the WHO Eastern Mediterranean Region in the year 2000. Using data from the WHO global burden of disease project, estimated rates of suicidal deaths were plotted for different sex and age groups. Overall rates of suicide were higher in females than males in age groups 5-14 and 15-29 years. The peak age for suicides among females was 15-29 years [8.6 per 100 000] and for males 60+ years [10.8 per 100 000]. As a proportion of all deaths due to injury, suicides were substantially higher in females than males. Females in high-income countries had the lowest rates of suicide in all age groups and males in high-income countries had a lower rate than males in low- and middle-income countries

Al Habeeb, A.A.; Sherra, K.S.; Al Sharqi, A.M.; Qureshi, N.A. ( 2013 )
Abstract

The aim of this cross-sectional 1-year study was to estimate the prevalence and to identify the risk factors for suicidal and self-injurious behaviours among patients with depression. A convenience sample of 557 out- and inpatients diagnosed with mood disorders was selected from 3 treatment settings in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Eligible patients completed data on sociodemographic variables and the Columbia suicide severity rating scale risk assessment version. The reported prevalence of attempted suicide in the previous week was 36.6%, interrupted suicide attempt 29.8%, aborted suicide attempt 34.6% and self-injurious behaviour without suicide intent 7.7%. Concerning suicide ideation, 47.2% reported suicidal thoughts, 36.6% suicidal thoughts with methods but without a specific plan and 35.4% suicidal intent without a specific plan. Male sex, joint family type, literate education, being in employment, smoking and physical co-morbidities were significantly associated with all types of suicide behavior

Saberi-Zafaghandi, M.B.; Hajebi, A.; Eskandarieh, S.; Ahmadzad Asl, M. ( 2012 )
Abstract

Suicide is an important public health problem worldwide. A retrospective study from March 2001 to March 2007 examined some characteristics of cases of suicide and attempted suicide in the Islamic Republic of Iran based on the health system database of 41 medical universities. A total of 53 100 cases of suicide and attempted suicide were analysed. Just over half were among women [55.0%]. The most usual method of attempted suicide among both males and females was drug overdose. Self-burning was more frequent in females [5.8%] while hanging [4.5%], cutting [2.8%] and firearms [0.5%] were more common in males. There were 3883 [7.3%] completed [fatal] suicides. Hanging had the highest case fatality rate [76.5%] and drug overdose the lowest [2.3%]. Older people had a higher mortality rate. Suicide and attempted suicides increased from 8.3 per 100 000 population in 2001 to 19.4 in 2005, then declined to 16.3 in 2007
