2, we present the number of suicides in the general population and the corresponding rate, respectively, for CY 2006 as a function of sex and age. In aggregate, the age distribution for military personnel skews younger than the age distribution of civilian adults in the United States: Almost half of active-duty personnel and one-third of selected reservists are between 18 and 25 (DoD, undated). For sailors and marines, there are not large differences in rates of suicide across age categories, though one could conclude that the rate for older sailors and marines tends to be a bit higher.

Suicide ideation among soldiers resulting in hospitalization or evacuation is captured on the ASER. , no self-harm). However, in 2006, not all Army medical facilities were aware that noninjurious suicidal behaviors warranted an ASER. , no self-harm) increased dramatically to 622.
