Figure 2 provides trends using age-adjusted mortality rates. The CDC has estimated rates that hold constant 11 age groups at their shares of the population, so that the changes in rates over time are unaffected by whether older or younger people are becoming more or less prevalent. The long-term patterns for deaths of despair are similar to those for the crude rates, but Scotland IN wife swapping estimates are available only back to Age-adjusted suicide rates go all the way back toand they indicate higher death rates than the crude rates early in the 20th century.
