Fact Sheet/Issue Brief
U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)
U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) produced this series of state-by-state fact sheets which include suicide data by sex, adult age group and means for the year 2016. The state rates are compared with the rest of the region and nation. These fact sheets are based on the VA’s report, Suicide among veterans and other Americans, 2001–2016, a comprehensive review of more than 55 million records which allowed the VA to examine veteran suicide rates in each state and region. These are updated versions of the sheets corrected for minor inconsistencies in 2018.
