Bar graph shows what percentage of young people who die by suicide had a history of suicide attempts (14% for males, 27% for females), how many had disclosed intent (27% for males, 33% for females) and how many left a note (27% of males, 37% of females).

Research has shown that almost three-quarters of people who attempt suicide make the decision impulsively, often within minutes of the attempt. In this graph, blue bars represent males, purple represent females. Overall, males are three to four times more likely than females to die by suicide.
