Official manipulation of suicide rates in NZ partially exposed
Posted by te2ataria on May 29, 2016
Foreword: Truth is regarded as a dangerous, alien chimera, disallowed to not burden the minds of New Zealanders!
‘Number of suicides may be three times as high as recorded’
The official suicide rate has increased from 11.73 in the year to June last year to 12.27 (for every 100,000 people) this year.
However, the country’s suicide rate may be [at least] three times as high as official figures suggest. The latest statistics put New Zealand’s suicide rate at only 570 for the whole year.
But Timaru GP Dr Oliver Bourke told Fairfax Media coroners won’t rule a death as suicide unless it’s very clear the person intended taking their own life.
Dr Bourke said deaths will be classified in a different category, such as an accident, or the cause will go down as undetermined – what’s known as an “open verdict”.
Heavily manipulated statistics show that 564 people committed suicide in the year to June 2015, up from 529 in 2014.
However, this is just the proverbial tip of the iceberg. What Dr Bourke probably doesn’t realize is that the overall figures are subject to several other rounds of manipulation by government officials before they are published.
But kudos to DR Bourke for speaking out.
