Register of Suicide Attempts
The Register of Suicide Attempts covers the period 1990-2021 and lists suicide attempts which result in contact to a hospital because of hospitalisation or visit at an emergency ward at a somatic or a psychiatric department with contact reason E4 (suicide, suicide attempt, deliberate self harm).
From 2011- 2018, the Register of Suicide Attempts is kept on the basis of the Danish National Patient Register – LPR2. Since 2019, data on suicide attempts is generated from the new Danish National Patient Register – LPR3.
From 1990 – 2010 the Centre for Suicide Research has registered suicide attempts in the administrative district of Funen on the basis of case records from emergency sections. Since 2011, the Register of Suicide Attempts is kept on the basis of the Danish National Patient Register.
The article Register for Suicide Attempts in Danish Medical Journal describes the Register in further detail.
From the Danish Bank of Statistics one can generate data from the Registers. For statistical information in English, please contact the Centre on firstname.lastname@example.org.
