Suicides in Portugal have dropped to the lowest in a decade.

According to the National Statistics Institute, the number of people who took their own lives in 2016 dipped to below the 1,000 mark for the first time in a decade. This has been attributed to a pick-up in the country’s economic situation, according to experts. A peak in the number of suicides coincided with the intervention of the troika, and the number of male suicides outweighs the number of female suicides.
