Are recent drug users (within past month)
An estimate of the number of individuals, age 12 and older, using illicit drugs within the past month was calculated. The figure was calculated using the following formula: (2000-2001 Percentages Reporting Past Month Use of Any Illicit Drug by Age Group and State for age 12 and older) x (2005 county population estimates for ages 12 and older). Illicit drug use includes use of one or more of the following: marijuana, cocaine (including crack), heroin, hallucinogens (including LSD and PCP), inhalants, or non-medical use of psychotherapeutics, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA, Office of Applied Statistics, Table B.1 Illicit Drug Use in Past Month, by Age Group and State: Percentages, Annual Averages Based on 2004 and 2005 NSDUHs).
