The suicide rate in the US is growing. From 1999 to 2010, the suicide rate among Americans, aged - 35 to 64 increased nearly 30 percent. The largest increases were among men in their 50s, a rates rising near 50 percent, or 30 per 100,000. For women aged 60 to 64, rates rose 60 percent to 7.0 per 100,000.
