[Main Table of Contents]


This chapter highlights important findings in the 2000 data. The tables include all items in the TEDS Minimum Data Set [Tables 3.1a-3.5] and Supplemental Data Set [Tables 3.6-3.9] for 2000. Data are tabulated as percentage distributions
according to primary substance of abuse.

The Minimum Data Set consists of 19 items that include:

The Supplemental Data Set consists of 15 items that include psychiatric, social, and economic measures.

Definitions and classifications used in the Minimum and Supplemental Data Sets are detailed in the Appendix.

Not all States report all data items in the Minimum and Supplemental Data Sets. Most States report the Minimum Data Set for all or nearly all TEDS admissions. However, the items reported from the Supplemental Data Set vary greatly across States. Tables 4.3 and 4.4 indicate, by State, the item response rates for the Minimum and Supplemental Data Sets.

The stacked bar charts in this chapter represent counts of admissions for each primary substance of abuse by sex, age, and race/ethnicity. Admissions of Mexican and Puerto Rican origin made up 75 percent of Hispanic admissions [Table 3.1b]. In the bar charts, these are shown separately. The category Other includes Hispanics not of Mexican or Puerto Rican origin (including Hispanics of unspecified origin), Asian/Pacific Islanders, and all others.
