Employment

Current employment status is also highly correlated with rates of illicit drug use, as 14.3 percent of unemployed adults (age 18 and older) were current illicit drug users in 1995, compared with 5.5 percent of full-time employed adults. The rate for full-time employed adults decreased significantly between 1994 (6.7 percent) and 1995 (5.5 percent) (Figure 5).

Seventy-one percent of all current illicit drug users age 18 and older (7.4 million adults) were employed, including 5.4 million full-time workers and 1.9 million part-time workers.
