I am helping a researcher find suicide statistics going back to 1975. The Vital Stats Death Database goes back to 1921, so I am wondering why Intentional Harm (Suicide) series only go back to 2000?
The 1999 Health Indicators has
DETAILED CAUSES OF DEATH/RATE/AGE/SEX (00060144.ivt)
with seven different types of suicide from 1991-1996. The 1997 edition has a table (00060111.ivt) on suicides, with totals by age and province (no sex), but a time series from 1961-1993.
