    Fifteen suicides take place every hour in India and a majority (69.2 per cent) of the suicide victims are married while 30.8 percent un-married, according to latest government statistics. One suicide out of every 5 is committed by a housewife, said the statistics released in the form of a report.

    "It is observed that social and economic causes have led most of the males to commit suicide whereas emotional and personal causes have mainly driven females to end their lives," the report, released by Home Minister P Chidambaram, said.


    Over 41 percent of suicide victims were self-employed while only 7.5 per were un-employed. More than one lakh persons (1,34,599) in the country lost their lives by committing suicide during the year 2010 and nearly 70.5 per cent of the suicide victims were married males while 67.0 per cent were married females, according to the report of the National Crime Record Bureau for 2010.
