"Based on data freely available in the public domain, there is insufficient information to support the statement that Indigenous youth in the top half of Australia have the highest rate of suicide in the world."

"To know for sure, we’d need to compare age standardised data by sex and age-group from other countries with high suicide rates. However, it is safe to say that in some parts of Australia, the suicide rate among young Indigenous people is at the very high end of the global spectrum.
