Suicides by occupation: FOIA

Gwrthodwyd y cais gan Office for National Statistics.

Dear Office for National Statistics,

This is a FOIA request about suicides by occupation in England.

I am making the request after reviewing the data in this table.

https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationa...

Having reviewed the Mortality Statistics: Metadata (July 2015) document I believe the information I am seeking will be held in the deaths database which contains register information (page 30) collected from 310v coroners form.

I am grateful for the time you will invest in preparing a response to this request. If you wish to discuss or query any aspect of it you can reach me on +44(0)7479 188022.

The request

1. Please state the number of suicides for the following occupations:

a) Police officers (sergeant and below)
b) Paramedics
c) Prison service officers (below principal officer)
d) National government administrative occupations
e) Local government administrative occupations
f) Care workers and home carers

for the following financial years:

2010-11
2011-12
2012-13
2013-14
2014-15
2015-16
2016-17

2. Please state the estimated rate of suicide per 100,000 population for the professions above and include breakdowns for the financial years above.

3. If you hold this information for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and can provide some or all of it within the time allocation provided by the FOIA, then I hereby request the information specified in 1 & 2 for those countries (in that respective order of priority).

If you consider that some information is exempt from disclosure please cite the section of the FOIA you are using to redact information. In line with the spirit and intent of the legislation, please do not withhold information on a 'blanket' basis and ensure any redactions you make are sufficiently granular.

Where applying exemptions which contain a public interest text, please also explain, in line with the guiding principles of the Information Tribunal, how the public interest would be, or would be likely to be, materially prejudiced by disclosure. I would prefer to receive all information in electronic format and in machine-readable formats where applicable. I would be grateful if you could acknowledge receipt of this request.

Thank you,

Lucas Amin
