State Data: 1992 - 2000

[Main Table of Contents]

TEDS aggregates data collected through the data collection systems of the Single State Agencies (SSAs) for substance abuse treatment. States have cooperated with the Federal government in the data collection process, and substantial progress has been made toward developing a standardized data set. However, because each State system is unique and each State has unique powers and
mandates, significant differences exist among State data collection systems. These differences are compounded by evolving health care payment systems.

Table 4.5a presents, by State, the numbers of admissions aged 12 and over for 1992-2000. Table 4.5b presents, by State, admission rates per 100,000 population aged 12 and over for 1992-2000. Table 4.6 presents rates per 100,000 population adjusted for age, sex, and race/ethnicity. Age adjustment is used to take into account demographic variation across States. It compares the distributions under the assumption that each State’s TEDS population and the U.S. population had the same age, sex, and racial/ethnic composition.

Table 4.7a presents, by State and primary substance, the numbers of admissions aged 12 and over for 2000. Tables 4.7b and 4.8 present the crude and adjusted rates, respectively, based on these admissions.

Interpretation of these tables and comparisons across States should be made cautiously and should take into account the many sources of variation detailed above.
