Mortality Data From the Drug Abuse Warning Network, 2002 provides information on deaths involving drug abuse that were identified and submitted by participating death investigation jurisdictions across the United States.
The Office of Applied Studies (OAS) of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is responsible for the operation of the Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN).
Two types of drug abuse deaths are reportable to DAWN: those that were druginduced (i.e., the drug(s) caused the death) and those that were drugrelated (i.e., the drug played a contributory role in the death).
A total of 31 metropolitan areas reported at least 30 drug abuse deaths to DAWN for 2002.
Full "metropolitan area profiles" are provided for each of these areas.
These profiles include a number of tables that together show the number and characteristics of drug abuse deaths reported to DAWN, along with recent trends among participating jurisdictions. These "Highlights" will focus on these 31 metropolitan areas.
