Suicide is the nation's 10th-leading cause of death, and suicide rates have increased in almost every state since the turn of the century, according to data reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Be smart: More than half of the people that committed suicide didn't have a diagnosed mental health condition, per the CDC. Many causes of suicide include factors like job, money, or legal stresses, relationship problems, substance abuse, loss, and more.

  • 25 states saw an increase in suicide by more than 30%.
  • The rates of increase largely varied. For example, there was an increase of 6% in Delaware, compared to a 57% increase in North Dakota.
  • In 2016, 45,000 Americans 10 years or older committed suicide, according to the CDC.

Why it matters: The long-awaited suit is Washington's first major blow against the tech giants that many on both the right and left argue have grown too large and powerful. Still, this is just step one in what could be a lengthy and messy court battle.
