A long-term Danish study has found that trans people in the country experience higher rates of suicide and mortality. According to the study, which used data gathered on people aged 15 and older, between 1980 and 2021, trans people in Denmark had attempted to take their own lives at 7.7 times the rate of cisgender people, with the rate of death 3.5 times higher for trans people than their cisgender counterparts. Among the 3,759 survey participants who identified as transgender, there were 92 suicide attempts and 12 suicides between 1980 and 2021. However, researchers say the true numbers could be higher, because the records they used did not always capture a person’s gender identity.
