May 8, 2013

This map shows the 2011 suicide rate for each Virginia locality. The darker the color, the higher the rate. The highest rates were concentrated in the counties and cities in southwestern and western Virginia.

The map is based on this data. The suicide statistics come from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner; the unemployment data is from the Virginia Employment Commission.
