Blog 7: Suicide is 2nd most common death for Americans between 15 & 34.

1.  I chose this research because suicide is related to mental health which is what our topic for this blog post. Basically the main point of this research is to point out that more americans die from gun suicide than gun homicide which is very interesting. You hear about many homicides on a daily basis but you never really hear about suicides being reported since that is a more personal matter. Its just kind of surprising that there are even more suicides happening than all of the homicides we hear about. They mention that suicide is more stigmatized than homicide, but less publicly discussed.

2. This research was conducted by The Upshot which is the research outlet of the The New York Times. They got the data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and analyzed it and organized it into different infographics.

3. I am curious of how the numbers would change if you included all methods of suicide and homicide and then compared the two, and if suicide would still be in the lead.
