This includes data from all 50 states as well as US Territories, and is the largest veteran data set released to date. The release reveals that from 2001-2014 there was an 8.8% increase in suicide among veterans accessing care through the Veteran's Health Administration (VHA) whereas there was a 38.6% percent increase in suicide among veterans not accessing care from the VHA.
