      Nwanne Onumah, Austine Onyia, Faith Iseguede
Abstract: Suicidal behaviors play a major role in suicidal deaths among adolescents in the United States. This study examines the prevalence of suicidal behaviors among youths in Mississippi by age, race/ethnicity, grade, and gender. Data were analyzed from the Mississippi Youth Risk Behavior Survey for 2019. The survey employed a representative sample of students in grades 9 – 12. The prevalence of suicidal behaviors among participants was adjusted for gender, age, race, and grade reference data from the CDC growth chart. Differences in the groups were examined with univariate t-test statistical analysis at p- value<0.05 and frequency distribution to determine the percentage differences.
