Third Leading Cause of Death

Various economic magazines and business analysts have estimated that 75% of the working population of America and Canada, will be Generation Y by 2025.

Following classic 20-year generations, these are people born from 1984 – 2005.

In the year 2025, these potential workers of Gen Y will be ages 20 to 41. How many of them will still be alive? Suicide is the third leading cause of death among Gen Y, according to the CDC:

QUOTE: “America loses approximately 100 Americans every 24 hours from suicide,” said Pamela Hyde, administrator of the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration…Among people 18 to 24, suicide is now the third leading cause of death, officials said.”
