The most common method of self-immolation, a form of self harm that often involves a sharp object, has a lower death rate than the more lethal methods, such as hanging or suffocation.
The rate is 2.5 times lower, according to data compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and 1.4 times lower for non-fatal injuries.
But some people choose to use the more deadly methods of self death, and the CDC report does not mention which.
A 2014 report by the American Medical Association found that among the 1.3 million Americans who took their own lives in 2013, the suicide rate was more than twice as high among people who reported a history of mental illness.
Self-injury was also more common among those with a history.
According to the CDC’s report, the most common types of self injuries reported were falls, cuts, burns, burns from objects, and drowning.
The report did not indicate whether the higher rate of self injury was linked to the number of people who use the most dangerous methods.
Selfish intent is the leading cause of death for young adults ages 15 to 24.
The CDC said suicide is the most lethal method in the U.S. for people ages 15-24, and it said suicide-related deaths are twice as likely among those who had been diagnosed with depression.
The National Center for Health Statistics said the rate of suicide was higher for those aged 25 to 34 than it was for other age groups, but that the number was much higher for people in their early 20s.
