The Fox Cities Life Study is released today.

The United Way sponsored study is conducted every five years and focuses on living conditions through the Fox Valley area.

This year, the study focused on quality of life issues like youth health, poverty, and access to voting and voting registration.

The study also highlighted an alarming trend, a higher than average rate of teen suicides, around 15%.

The United Way says they're hopeful the study can push leaders to create more intervention and support programs for students struggling with suicidal thoughts.
