Almost 6,000 people killed themselves in the UK in 2004. While suicide rates in the UK fell between 1991 and 2004 this decrease did not occur in all areas. Large disparities remain between suicide rates in the countries of the UK, and between regions and local areas. This article also presents inequalities in suicide rates by deprivation, and considers change over time, for men and women, and for different age groups.
