Do the Queensland rates differ from the national rate or from other states and territories?
It is complicated. Queensland figures are from 1st July to the following end of June, while ABS figures are specific to a given year. The latest report from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (http://www.abs.gov.au/ausstats/abs@.nsf/Lookup/by%20Subject/3303.0~2012~Main%20Features~Age~10010) is from beginning 2008 to the end of 2012 (5 years), for ages 5-14 years, with a total of 57 suicides from all states and territories, 14 from Queensland. The equivalent number for the same 5 years in the CCYPCG report could be up to 26 deaths, so there may be a disparity.
