Suicide data from this source are somewhat under-reported due to the difficult nature of classifying suicide and the time lag in determining this as the cause of death, which may vary from year to year and from one region to another.In 2009, there were approximately 238,000 deaths in Canada, of which 3,890 were attributed to suicides.
According to Guttmacher Institute, 40% of Minnesota pregnancies were unintended.
Additionally, the teen pregnancy rate (women aged 15-19) was 36 in 1,000 women in 2010.
This resulted in a suicide rate of 11.5 deaths per 100,000 people.
During that year, a total of 2,989 males committed suicide (17.9 deaths per 100,000) compared to 901 females (5.3 deaths per 100,000).
They included the year in their analysis "to account for trends in adolescent birth rates that could not be explained by any of our measured variables over time." The researchers then adjusted for states' demographic characteristics and religious/political climate.
Results From 1996 through 2004, a "relatively high" percentage of schools in the 24 states taught sex education topics, although the percentage that included instruction on how to use a condom was much lower, the researchers found.
Rather, suicide typically results from the interaction of many factors, for example: mental illness, marital breakdown, financial hardship, deteriorating physical health, a major loss, or a lack of social support.

The researchers noted that on the whole, teen birth rates in the U. have been on the decline since the 1960s, although there was a slight uptick in 20 before the rates began to decline again. Thorough examination of school-based sex education programs is essential to better understanding the programs' impact on teens' sexual behaviors, the researchers wrote.
