Important notes and usage information

Earlier in the year, this file was produced for Great Britain. This was done in order to improve the timeliness of the associated suicide publication and to produce estimates ahead of world suicide prevention day, given that Northern Ireland data was not available.

This file was updated on Monday 18 December 2017.
