Summary of request

Table 1 details number of suicides among those classified as full-time students aged 18 years and above at the time of death registration. Figures are for deaths registered in England and Wales between 2001 and 2015, and are split by sex and usual place of residence indicator.

The numbers detailed in this data set cannot be used to ascertain the risk of suicide among students. Year-to-year differences in numbers of deaths may merely reflect change in the population of students across time as opposed to change in the risk of suicide.
