The aim of this article is to examine method-specific suicide mortality data. Method-specific suicide trends vary across countries by time, age, and sex. Often the patterns of suicidal behaviour are determined by sociocultural accessibility of suicide methods and their corresponding associations are very complex. In this article a graphic software tool (Cirocs) is used to visualize tabulated method-specific mortality data counts. Created images allow capturing and displaying complex patterns.
