The New Hampshire Center for Excellence and the University of New Hampshire Institute for Health Policy and Practice maintain a web-based inventory of data about key population indicators including those established during the New Hampshire Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) project.

The Data Library provides relevant and current data sets for service providers. The key indicators are presented under three main categories for the data sets:

  1. Rates of Alcohol and Other Drug Use
    • Use indicators include 30-day use rates, lifetime use, and age of first use.
  2. Consequences of Alcohol and Other Drug Use
    • Consequence indicators include arrest rates, emergency department data, and in/outpatient discharge data.
  3. Perceptions of Alcohol and Other Drug Use
    • Perception indicators include perception of harm and perception of wrongness of alcohol and other drug use.

Key indicator data are available at the state level and the regional network level. Key indicators are presented within the following substance categories when possible:

  • Alcohol
  • Binge Alcohol
  • Tobacco
  • Inhalants
  • Marijuana
  • Other Illicit Drugs
  • Prescription Drugs
  • Over-the-Counter Drugs

Future expansions to the data library will include reports from New Hampshire Poison Control for drug overdoses and alcohol retailer violations.
