Eurostat: 682 Bulgarians Committed Suicide in 2015

A recent Eurostat statistic shows that in 2015 the number of Bulgarians who took their lives was 682. This means that 9 Bulgarians per 100,000 committed suicide that year, with an average of 11 per 100,000 in the European Union.

Annually, about 3,000 Bulgarians commit suicide as the ratio of unsuccessful attempts to the successful ones is approximately 4:1. The main reasons are family conflicts, mental disorders, unsuccessful love, physical suffering, financial problems. 1-2% of the suicides in the country are because of losingĀ a job or not being able to get one.

More than 56,000 people committed suicides in the EU in 2015. Most of them were recorded in Latvia, Slovenia, Lithuania, and Hungary. The lowest share of registered suicides was registered in Cyprus, Greece, and Italy.

In absolute terms, the highest number of suicides was recorded in Germany (10,200) and France (9,200), followed by Poland (5,400). More men took their lives in the EU as a whole - they make up almost 80% of the suicides.
