Abstract:

Timely and accurate suicide data reporting allows leaders at all levels to have near real time information that facilitates decision-making related to suicide prevention. Timeliness in reporting Department of Defense DoD statistics on suicide mortality is a core issue affecting the focus of DoD suicide prevention efforts. One of the principal goals of this Quarterly Suicide Report QSR is to improve the timeliness and availability of data to bolster suicide prevention efforts. Additionally, stakeholders external to DoD can access the information included in the QSR to obtain information on deaths by suicide within the DoD. The QSR summarizes suicide counts for the Active Component and the Reserve Component Reserve and the National Guard. The 2015 third quarter DoD QSR shows calendar year 2015first, second, and third quarter suicides for each of the military Services.
