What group of people have highest suicide rate in the US?

If you mean in terms of occupations, probably members of the armed forces, police officers, and perhaps truck drivers. Truck driving is a field where a number of military vets get involved because war made them more isolated from others. Driving a truck is mostly a solitary job, and it allows someone to feel in control while they are on the road. Of course, living situations and disabilities are also a factor. Those estranged from their families are more likely to consider suicide than those in loving relationships. LGBT persons are more likely to commit suicide than heterosexuals. Divorced people are more likely to commit suicide than single people and happily married couples. Those who become disabled later in life may be more likely to commit suicide than either those disabled very early in life (excluding certain mental conditions) and those who suffer no disabilities. IQ can be a factor to a point. Those who are right below the normal range are probably more likely to commit suicide than those in the normal range and those who are profoundly mentally challenged. Things are perhaps the hardest on those who have cognitive disabilities and are fully aware they have them.

Is suicide infectious?

The idea of it may be but it certainly isn't a virus that you can get from being around someone. If you are around people who committed suicide or people who talk about suicide, try to get counseling. If your friend or someone you know wants to commit suicide, try to get them help as well. It is "contageous" in the sense that depressed people who see or hear of other people committing suicide will be more likely to want to commit suicide as well. That is one reason to resist the urge to commit suicide, since someone may want to follow in your footsteps and do it too. It is even worse when the person is very popular or influential. Someone may reason, "If it is good enough for ______, then it is good enough for me."
