Interventions to reduce suicide among black Americans are limited by a lack of data on suicide prevalence and risks in this population. Joe and colleagues analyzed data from a nationally representative survey to assess the prevalence and correlates of suicide ideation, planning, and attempts among blacks of African American and Caribbean ethnicity. The authors found a lifetime prevalence of 11.7% for suicide ideation and 4.1% for suicide attempts, levels that are comparable with the general population. Caribbean black men had the highest prevalence of attempts. Other factors associated with suicide attempts included younger age, lower education, Midwest residence, and having 1 or more psychiatric disorders.
