Age-Adjusted Death Rate due to Drug Use

Value: 11.2 deaths/100,000 population
Measurement
Period:
2009-2011
Location: County : Marin
Comparison: CA Counties
Categories: Health / Substance Abuse
Health / Mortality Data
What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the age-adjusted death rate per 100,000 population due to drug use.
Why this is important: 
Drug abuse and its related problems are among society's most pervasive health and social concerns. Causes of drug-induced deaths include dependent and non-dependent use of drugs (both legal and illegal use) and also poisoning from medically prescribed drugs. Addicted persons frequently engage in self-destructive and criminal behavior, which can result in injury or death. In addition, recreational drug-use can lead to unintentional overdose and death.
The Healthy People 2020 national health target is to reduce the drug-induced death rate to 11.3 deaths per 100,000 population.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 57 California counties.
