  1. *: p  < 0.05.
  2. †: Mortality rate ratio for age group was calculated using the reference age group (15–24 years) because of the lack of deaths in the youngest age group.
  3. Note: Mortality rate ratios for suicide were omitted due to extremely low age-specific suicide rate and the absence of deaths in the reference groups.
