with respect to U.S. mortality rates/trends, I liked this set of visualizations:

It's mostly line graphs or stacked area graphs

The one slide on suicide is misleading, though, because it's based on absolute numbers and not rates.

Suicide rates are much much higher for old guys - it is an age discriminator. The only reason people don't notice is that so many other things are killing old guys that suicide doesn't even make it into the top ten.

compare to women:



That peak for female suicide is much lower than the rate for males age 15-24.
