The Drug Impact Index provides a set of indicators designed to determine the extent of the local drug problem in a community. Each indicator includes a technical note on the data sources, a graph showing comparative statistics on that indicator for the Portland area and for the State of Oregon, and brief remarks on the implications of the data. The 10 indicators are as follows: (1) drug overdose deaths; (2) drug-affected babies; (3) drug use in arrestees; (4) drug-related hospital emergency room visits; (5) drug use by adolescents; (6) alcohol use by adolescents; (7) adult arrests for drug offenses; (8) juvenile arrests for drug offenses; (9) parent training participation; and (10) students referred for school policy violations.
