Suicide Rates by Occupation

Which occupations see the highest rate of suicide at work? This visual uses fatality counts from the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries and employment estimates by occupation. Included are fatalities due to intentional self-harm.

It’s worth noting that even with 5 years of fatality data, there are very few on-the-job suicides. That means that the rates are probably very noisy.

See the previous post on fatal occupational injuries by cause.
