Suicide rates in the United States have increased since the economic crisis began.  A review of data from the Centers for Disease Control shows suicide rates rose slowly between 1999 and 2007, but from 2008 to 2010, the rate more than quadrupled.

Researchers estimate that rising unemployment may account for about a quarter of the excess suicides since 1997.
