National and Regional Data Sources

Data is essential to substance use prevention planning. Below is a collection of data sources – both national and state level – that can support and guide prevention planning. While state and national data cannot directly replace the value of local data, they can provide comparison or serve as a proxy when local data is not available. 

These data sources include both substance use behaviors as well as related risk and protective factors to help understand what is driving substance use problems nationally and at the state level.
