    This chart (from today's release - ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulati…) surprised me. A lot is written about suicide in young men - the most common cause of death for this group. But it's actually those in their 40s and 50s who have the highest rates.

  3. It's been addressed - graph seems not to be controlled for cohort size, so it's partly a factor of being a large cohort.

  6. Depends on the relative cohort sizes.

  12. Ok, but that's not what the graph is representing. It says explicitly it's absolute numbers. We need raw data to separate the effects.

  14. @guyevan29068996 So it’s not a cohort-size effect? In which case these are really interesting numbers.
