Abstract:

To help the National Guard Bureau NGB decide how suicide prevention funding and programs would best be distributed among U.S. states and territories, IDA researchers conducted quantitative analyses of suicide rates in the U.S. Army National Guard ARNG and the U.S. general population GP. They discovered that differences in age, sex, and geographic distribution explain much of the higher suicide risk in the ARNG relative to the GP.
