US Suicide rates per year

Cactus over at Angry Bear has been having a wonderful 3 months in which he has been comparing all sorts of US social statistics since 1960 - and highlighting which president was in power at that time.

At the moment he is examining US Suicide rates.

This graph shows quite clearly that US Suicide rates dropped dramatically during the tenures of presidents Carter and Clinton - both Democrats, while showing either a deterioration or no improvement in presidents like Nixon, Reagan and George W. Bush - all Republicans.
