Middle-Aged Suicide Rate Increases

Retriever sent along a surprising blurb from Zero Hedge, reporting that the suicide rate for middle-aged Americans is way up over the last decade, and all of that is driven by Caucasians.  I hadn't realised the Caucasian rate was so much higher to begin with, nor that it was increasing.

I knew that rates varied, but I didn't realize how much.

Murder plus suicide rates vary hugely too, so it isn't a matter of turning violence inward vs outward.
