English: Female suicide rates by country (per 100,000 females), with the colour scheme/scale chosen to be the same as for the male map for easier comparison. The most recent data available is from 2009, some of the data is as old as 1978 though.

  • I interpreted France in the data as including the overseas departments of Reunion, Guadeloupe, Martinique, and French Guiana as they are integral parts of France.
  • China does not include the SARs of Hong Kong and Macao. Also the China data notes that it's for "Selected rural & urban areas".
