Comment Re:Suicide statistics and sources (Score 1) 754

Analysis of death certificates from 2000 confirms 16.8k is accurate.

According to Mokdad et al. (http://www.csdp.org/research/1238.pdf 2004),
in 2000 there were 28663 deaths due to firearms (down from 36000 in 1990).

of those,
16586 (57.9%) were suicide
10801 (37.7%) were homicide
776 (2.7%) were accidents
270 were 'interventions', which I believe is a 'good kill' by police
230 are undetermined
