In 1997, approximately 6.3 million people, or 7.7 percent of the 81.8 million full-time workers age 18 to 49 reported having used illicit drugs in the month prior to their interviews. In 1994, about 6 million people, or 7.6 percent of the 78.7 million full-time workers age 18 to 49 reported having used illicit drugs in the month prior to their interviews. While current illicit drug use rates were about the same between 1994 and 1997, the prevalence rate for current heavy alcohol use among full-time workers dropped from 8.4% in 1994 to 7.6% in 1997. The data also revealed an apparent shift of workers reporting both current illicit drug use and current heavy alcohol use from the small-sized establishments to the medium-sized establishments between 1994 and 1997.
