Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Recently saw swedish statistics and they were about the same.

Speaking of statistics I started to wonder about suicide statistics and checked wikipedia.

List of countries by suicide rate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This list should be used with caution. Little data is available documenting suicide rates in Africa, and the Middle East. Even in countries where cause-of-death data is collected systematically, differing societal attitudes toward suicide may impact the recorded figures (e.g., misreporting a suicide as an accidental death out of deference for the bereaved). Also, due to the highly corrupt police forces in Eastern Europe, many murders are written off as suicides.

I thought there was something fishy with the egyptians never commiting suicide.

Heh. Someone should plaster this full with [reference needed] tags...

I recall a report a few years ago in similar vein, about East Asian countries, with some first disclosed statistics quoted from China that put it in undisputed first place.

BTW, just checked: the suicide rate of Hungary today is about half of the maximum in the late seventies-eighties.
