Delaware Epidemiological Reports

​​​​​​​​​​​

The Delaware Epidemiological Profile is prepared annually by the Delaware State Epidemiological Outcomes Workgroup, a coalition of organizations and offices in the state that have and use analytical data concerning drug and alcohol use and abuse in Delaware.  

This Epidemiological Report is one product developed by the SEOW to disseminate data for strategic planning, decision-making, and evaluation. Using indicators which are available on an ongoing basis, it briefly describes Delaware-specific patterns of consumption, context, consequences, and trends of substance use, especially among young people.

The Epidemiological Profile Report contains data from over 30 different data sources, such as the Delaware School Survey, Treatment Epidsode Data, Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, Youth Risk Behavior Survey, the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, and many more. 

Note that research concerning human beings is rarely exact and the reliability of survey data is dependent upon many factors, including the size of the population surveyed and the wording of the questions, which may differ from one survey to another.  Small differences from year to year may not be as important as consistent trends or significantly large differences.

What's New in the 2020 Report

The 2020 Profile includes updated data from the Delaware School Survey, Youth Risk Behavior Survey Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance Systems, and the National Survey on Children's Health among other sources. Additional chapters cover mental health, adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), substance-exposed infants (SEI), LGBQ and T youth, and protective factors. Each chapter includes a narrative to provide context for the data presentation, and "Data in Action” sections to illustrate how the data can be used to inform prevention planning, policy,  and programs.
