One thought on “London Underground Suicide Rates

  1. Some lines are longer than others. When I saw the Northern Line’s rate, I thought “huh, I always found the Northern Line a bit depressing” — then I remembered how many stations it has – not the most on the Underground, though.

    Maybe it would make more sense to have “suicides per mile” or “suicides per station” for each line?

    Number of stations on each line:

    District: 60
    Piccadilly: 53
    Northern: 50
    Central: 49
    Circle: 36
    Metropolitan: 34
    Hammersmith & City: 29
    Jubilee: 27
    Bakerloo: 25
    Victoria: 16
    Waterloo & City: 2

    Now, Victoria looks like more of an outlier than Northern.
