FILE - In this Jan. 22, 2011 file photo, new graduates fill out forms after attending a company's briefing session as they look for a job in Tokyo. The National Police Agency report published Thursday, March 3, 2011 says a total of 31,690 people committed suicide in 2010, fell from the year before but remained above 30,000 for the 13th year in a row. But the number of people citing grim job prospects in their suicide notes has more than doubled since 2007. About one-third of them were in their 20s, including new graduates seeking jobs.
