NOTE: These scales are a companion piece to the 2010-2012 National Surveys on Drug Use and Health: Substate Age Group Tables. Estimates are based on a survey-weighted hierarchical Bayes estimation approach.
NOTE: All 384 substate regions were used to create these groups instead of the 363 regions that were used to create maps representing the 12 or older age group. Estimates for these 384 substate regions have been ranked from lowest to highest for each outcome and age group and divided into 7 categories. The three lowest groups (shown in blue) represent the lowest third of the estimates, with the lowest group having 17 regions, the next lowest group having 35 regions, and the next lowest group having 76 regions each (except in cases of ties where the numbers may vary a little). The three highest groups (shown in red) were created similarly. The middle group (shown in white) represents the 128 regions that fall into the middle third. The only exception to the colors were the three perception of risk outcomes (i.e., the rows for Tables 4, 11, and 14), which have the highest estimates represented in blue and the lowest estimates represented in red to the reflect the inverse relationship between substance use and perception of risk of using that substance. In some cases, a group (or category) could have more or fewer substate regions because two or more substate regions had the same estimate when rounded to two decimal places. When such ties occurred at the "boundary" between two groups, all substate regions that had the same estimate were assigned to the lower group. The upper and lower limits of each of the 7 categories define a continuum and are not necessarily the actual values of the particular area (i.e., the lower limit of group 2 is defined by adding 0.01 to the upper limit of group 1).

2 The average annual rates for the first use of marijuana were low for the 26 or older age group and had an abbreviated range; therefore, no substate region grouping has been made for this age group.
