Figure 4.6.9: Emergency department visits from self-harm by sex
Age-standardized rates per 100,000 population, Middlesex-London, 2017
Females (297.1 per 100,000) had nearly double the rate of the emergency department visits for self-harm compared to males (148.5) in 2017.
No significant differences were seen between rural and urban populations (not shown).
When comparing emergency department visits for self-harm and suicide deaths, females were more likely to go to the emergency department, whereas males were more likely to die (Figure 4.6.5).
