Suicide rates rose in every state but one between 1999 and 2016, according to a new government report.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a detailed report about suicide Thursday, which found alarming trends nationwide.

Notable figures in the data:

  • Suicide rates rose in every state except Nevada from 1999-2016.
  • Suicide rates rose by more than 30 percent in half of states.
  • 54 percent of people who died by suicide did not have a known mental health condition.
  • Nearly 45,000 people died by suicide in 2016.
  • 42 percent of people who committed suicide were dealing with a relationship problem, 29 percent had a crisis in the past or upcoming two weeks, 28 percent had problematic substance abuse, 22 percent had a physical health problem, and 16 percent had a job/financial problem.
  • Nevada saw a 1 percent decrease in suicides.

Fashion designer Kate Spade committed suicide this week at age 55 in her New York City apartment. Her death prompted an international response, including a statement from first daughter and senior White House adviser Ivanka Trump.
