The Centers for Disease Control and Prevent recently released its Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, which included statistics from the 2012 and 2015 National Violent Death Reporting System.

The report concluded that the construction and extraction industries hold the highest rate of male suicide among American workers.

The data used for the report looks at 22,053 suicides of people ages 16-64 from 17 states, and notes that the data might not necessary be nationally representative.

Late last week the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released its Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, which included statistics from the 2012 and 2015 National violent Death Reporting System. The report concluded that the construction and extraction industries hold the highest rate of male suicide among American workers.

The construction and extraction occupational group had the highest number and percentage of suicides among males in both 2012 and 2015.

The rate of suicide per 100,000 civilian non-institutionalized workers was 43.6 (1,009 workers) in 2012 and 53.3 (1,248) in 2015.

The suicide rate among the U.S. working-age population increased 34 percent overall during 2000-2016.

“Increasing suicide rates in the U.S. are a concerning trend that represent a tragedy for families and communities and impact the American workforce,” said Deb Houry, M.D., M.P.H., director, CDC National Center for Injury Prevention and Control.

“Knowing who is at greater risk for suicide can help save lives through focused prevention efforts.”

The top occupations for suicide rates in 2015 include, among men:

  • Construction and extraction
  • Arts, design, entertainment, sports and media; and
  • Installation, maintenance and repair.

Among women:

  • Arts, design, entertainment, sports and media;
  • Protective service; and
  • Health care support.
