Korean Suicide Rate Among World's Highest



Korea’s suicide rate has been rapidly growing over the last 10 years and has currently reached the highest in the world. According to the Korea National Statistical Office, the number of people committing suicide was 3,533 in 1992, but it more that doubled to 8,631 in 2002. In other words, 23.6 people a day and one person an hour killed themselves. The suicide rate (the number of people committing suicide per 100,000 people over five years old) also more than doubled from 9.7 persons in 1992 to 19.1 persons in 2002. Korea had the fourth largest number of people committing suicide among members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, following Hungary (27.4 persons,) Finland (21.2 persons) and Japan (19.9 persons). According to National Police Agency statistics, 27.4 Korean persons per 100,000 kill themselves, the highest number along with Hungary.



Psychiatrists and psychologists point out that people committed suicide out of philosophical reasons or a sense of grievance in the past, but recently, people kill themselves impulsively. In recent days, many people commit suicide by drowning or burning themselves, the most successful ways for suicide, while in the past, people killed themselves by cutting arteries or taking poison, ways that are unlikely to succeed, explained experts.



Yonsei University psychological professor Lee Hun-ku said, “In Western countries, people mostly commit suicide due to philosophical reasons like solitude or skepticism about existence. In Korea, many people kill themselves because of social reasons like credit card debts or the rapid deconstruction of family.”



Lee Hong-sik, a Yonsei University psychiatric professor and chairman of the Korean Association for Suicide Prevention, said, “The suicide rate is falling in Western countries because governments take the lead in systematically preventing suicide. It is urgent to establish a suicide preventive system.”
