I’m feeling a bit too lazy to translate this one right now, but basically the ROK suicide rate of 21.5 per 100,000 people is double the OECD average of 11.2 per 100,000 and a lot of people in the government are expressing concern about this. In 2001 the ROK rate was just 11.2 per 100,000, which has me wondering what’s changed so much in the last 7 years. Oh, and in 2006 Korean men were killing themselves at a rate of 32 per 100,00 (!), while women were doing so at a rate of 13.2 per 100,000.
