Abstract: Research on different aspects of suicide mortality is not possible without relevant statistics. Despite the fact that the statistical record of suicides in our country has a long history this topic remains highly understudied.

The purpose of this article is to analyze history and specific characteristics of statistical record of suicides in various revisions of the International statistical classification of diseases, injuries and death causes as well as in pre-revolutionary and soviet times in Russia.

Analysis of publications and legal documents devoted to statistical record of suicides was used as the main research method.

Results of the study include a step-by-step description of how suicides were included and detailed as a death cause in different revisions of the International statistical classification of diseases, injuries and death causes, as well as an overview and specific characteristics of statistical record of suicides in Russia in pre-revolutionary and Soviet times. The main conclusion of the article is that modern researchers have access to comparable and representative data on suicide mortality in Russia since 1956.

Scope of application. The study results can be used to study demographic, sociological, medical or other aspects of suicide mortality in Russia, and in mass media.

Keywords: suicide statistics in Russia; International statistical classification of diseases and health related problems; ICD; history of statistics
