About the Indicator: Alcohol is the most frequently used drug nationally and statewide and is associated with a number of adverse health consequences1.  Reported use of alcohol in the past 30 days is a common measure of recent alcohol use. In Minnesota, it is illegal for a person under age 21 to consume alcohol.  N/A indicates that the data are unavailable or were not collected.

In 2010, reported past-30 day alcohol use among 12th graders was slightly lower in Minnesota than the national average (rate ratio = 0.99:1.00).  State rates are from the Minnesota Student Survey (MSS); national rates are from Monitoring the Future (MTF).  For more national comparisons, click here State Epi Profile.

About the Indicator:

Alcohol is the most frequently used substance nationally and statewide, and is associated with a number of adverse health and social consequences. Reported use of alcohol in the past 30 days is a common measure of recent alcohol use. In Minnesota, it is illegal for a person under age 21 to consume alcohol.

According to the 2013 Youth Risk Behavior Survey, any past 30 day alcohol use was reported by 24.4% of 9th graders nationally.

According to 2013 MSS data, compared to 8th, 9th, and 11th graders who reported past-30 day alcohol use, those who DIDN'T report alcohol use were 2.6 times less likely to report past-year suicidal ideation; 1.8 times less likely to report problems with feeling depressed in the past year; 1.6 times less likely to report feeling anxious in the past year; 2.5 times less likely to report self harm in the past year; 1.4 times less likely to report past-month bullying victimization; 2 times less likely to report not feeling safe in their neighborhoods; 1.9 times less likely to report not being able to talk to their parents about problems; and 2.3 times less likely to report their parents only care about them some, a little, or not at all.

On the other hand, compared to those students who DID report past 30-day alcohol use, those who DIDN'T report use were 1.7 times more likely to report better teacher-student relationships; 1.4 times more likely to report greater educational engagement; 1.6 times more likely to report that the adults in their communities care about them quite a bit or very much; and 1.2 times more likely to report weekly participation in community activities.

Further, those students who reported using alcohol monthly or more often were 1.8 times more likely to think that most students in their school also drank monthly or more often, as compared to those who didn't drink. The association was even stronger in the other direction: students who think most of their peers use monthly or more often were 6.7 times more likely themselves to report using alcohol that often.

About the Indicator: Acute, short-term “binge drinking” is defined as having five or more drinks of alcohol on a single occasion1.  Up until 2010, the MSS asked students about past two week binge drinking; in 2013 they were asked about past 30 day binge drinking. Binge drinking has been associated with alcohol related injuries and deaths, as well as violence and crime. In Minnesota, it is illegal for a person under age 21 to consume alcohol.  N/A indicates that the data are unavailable or were not collected.

In 2010, reported past 2 week binge drinking among 12th graders was higher in Minnesota than the national average (rate ratio = 1.05:1.00).  States rates are from the Minnesota Student Survey; national rates are from Monitoring the Future (MTF).  For more national comparisons, click here State Epi Profile.

About the Indicator:

Up through the 2016 MSS, acute, short-term “binge drinking” was defined as having five or more drinks of alcohol on a single occasion. In 2019, the binge drinking definition changed to 5 or more drinks for male students and 4 or more drinks for female students. Therefore, trend data for female students CANNOT BE COMPARED between 2013/2016 and 2019.

Up until 2010, the MSS asked students about past two-week binge drinking; in 2013 they were asked about past 30-day binge drinking.

Binge drinking has been associated with alcohol related injuries and deaths, as well as violence and crime. In Minnesota, it is illegal for a person under age 21 to consume alcohol. 

According to the 2013 Youth Risk Behavior Survey, 13.5% of 9th graders and 24.6% of 11th graders reported binge drinking in the past month nationally.

About the Indicator:

These estimates provided by the National Safety Council do not attempt to include "comprehensive costs” but just direct costs of traffic crashes, deaths and injuries due to medical expense, property damage and lost productivity.

Other procedures that attempt to include comprehensive costs (e.g. those used by US Dept of Transportation) result in total cost estimates about 3 times greater than those calculated here.

About the Indicator:

As a depressant, alcohol use interferes with coordination, judgment and reaction time and can have fatal consequences.  Driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level 0.08 or higher, 0.04 in a commercial vehicle, or any amount at all if the driver is under age 21 is a legal violation and can be assessed from different sources.

Data are reported on DUI arrests and incidents on record1.

State and national comparisons can be found here by downloading the  State Epi Profile.

1 An incident on record refers to either 1) a civil implied consent revocation for failing or refusing an alcohol concentration test, or 2) a criminal conviction for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, which is recorded on the person’s Minnesota driving record.

About the Indicator: School disciplinary incidents involving alcohol were obtained by school district, then aggregated to the county level.  Percentages are found by totaling each county's alcohol-related incidents and dividing them by the total amount of disciplinary incidents for that county. Each incident is counted only once; if multiple reasons per incident were reported, only the most serious reason is counted.

The Minnesota Department of Education advises that each school district follow their own definitions in their discipline policies. Minnesota law addresses the possession, use, or sale of alcohol. School policies may include being intoxicated or possessing alcohol at school, school-sponsored events and on school-sponsored transportation. Determination of use would need to be made based upon school policy consistent with state and federal law. Information on relevant state statues include: alcohol definitions, alcohol possession consumption by persons under 21, and possession of alcohol on school grounds.

About the Indicator: The Drug and Alcohol Abuse Normative Evaluation System admission form contains 21 substances that a person can be admitted for, as well as an ‘other’ category.  This indicator represents the primary substance of abuse that persons were admitted for.  An asterisk indicates that the value is between 1 and 5, and is thus suppressed.  Persons were excluded if age, race/ethnicity, gender or residence was unknown.

This indicator represents the percentage of each specific demographic group admitted to treatment facilities in Minnesota by primary substance of abuse, out of the overall total of admissions to treatment facilities in Minnesota for that specific demographic group.  For example, the number of males under age 18 for a specific race admitted to treatment who reported primary abuse of marijuana were then divided by the total number of males under age 18 for that specific race, who were admitted to treatment for that same year.

In 2011, a higher percentage of people were admitted to Minnesota treatment facilities for alcohol as their primary substance of abuse compared to the national average (50.8% vs. 39.3%). National data are from the Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS).

About the Indicator: The Minnesota Student Survey question about peer disapproval changed in 2013. In prior years, students were asked about the extent to which their close friends would approve or disapprove of them if they had five or more drinks of alcohol, once or twice a week. In 2013, this question was dropped and students were instead asked how wrong their friends would feel it would be for them to drink one or two drinks of alcohol nearly every day. Therefore, 9th grade trend data are available only for 2013 and 2016.

"N/A" indicates that the data are unavailable or were not collected. "*" indicates the data are unreliable as a result of small sample sizes or other reasons.

About the Indicator: Reported tobacco use within the past 30 days (“30-day use”) is a frequent measure of current use, especially among youth.  Youth tobacco use is presented here using 30-day use of cigarettes.  In Minnesota, no person under 18 may possess, use, purchase or attempt to purchase tobacco products or tobacco-related devices (Minn. Stat. § 609.685).  N/A indicates that the data are unavailable or were not collected.

In 2010, reported past 30 day tobacco use (smoking cigarettes) among 12th graders was higher in Minnesota than the national average (rate ratio = 1.13:1.00).  State rates are from the Minnesota Student Survey; national rates are from Monitoring the Future (MTF).  For more national comparisons, click here State Epi Profile.

According to 2013 MSS data, those students who reported using tobacco monthly or more often were 2 times more likely to think that most students in their school also used tobacco monthly or more often, as compared to those who didn't use. The association was even stronger in the other direction: students who

think most of their peers use monthly or more often were 6.4 times more likely themselves to report using tobacco that often.

About the Indicator:

Current marijuana use is often assessed with measures of reported use in the past 30 days (30-day use). Students were asked about their use of marijuana, bud, weed, pot, hashish, hash, or hash oil.

According to the 2013 Youth Risk Behavior Survey, 17.7% of 9th graders and 25.5% of 11th graders nationally reported any past 30 day marijuana use.

According to 2013 MSS data, compared to 8th, 9th, and 11th graders who reported past-30 day marijuana use, those who DIDN'T report marijuana use were 2.7 times less likely to report past-year suicidal ideation; 1.8 times less likely to report problems with feeling depressed in the past year; 1.6 times less likely to report feeling anxious in the past year; 2.5 times less likely to report self harm in the past year; 1.3 times less likely to report past-month bullying victimization; 2.3 times less likely to report not feeling safe in their neighborhoods; 2.1 times less likely to report not being able to talk to their parents about problems; and 2.5 times less likely to report their parents only care about them some, a little, or not at all.

On the other hand, compared to those students who DID report past 30-day marijuana use, those who DIDN'T report marijuana use were 1.9 times more likely to report better teacher-student relationships; 1.6 times more likely to report greater educational engagement; 1.8 times more likely to report that the adults in their communities care about them quite a bit or very much; and 1.4 times more likely to report weekly participation in community activities.

Further, those students who reported using marijuana monthly or more often were 1.9 times more likely to think that most students in their school also used marijuana monthly or more often, as compared to those who didn't use. The association was even stronger in the other direction: students who think most of their peers use monthly or more often were 6.6 times more likely themselves to report using marijuana that often.

About the Indicator: Other drug consumption by youth is measured here as the number of students reporting any use of synthetic drugs in the past 12 months. Students were asked whether they used synthetic drugs such as bath salts (White Wave, White Lightning), or synthetic marijuana (K2, Gold), that they took only to get high.  N/A or * indicates that the data are unavailable or were not collected. As a result of discrepancies in illicit drug use responses, 2013 drug use data are not reliable and are not included here.

Because the question about synthetic drugs was added to the survey in 2013, trend data are not available.

Data Source: Minnesota Student Survey (MSS)

Data Source: Minnesota Student Survey (MSS)

Description: The MSS is a confidential and anonymous self-administered survey given to students attending Minnesota public, charter and tribal schools. From 1995 to 2010, the survey was administered to students in 6th, 9th, and 12th grades. New in 2013, the survey was administered to students in 5th, 8th, 9th, and 11th grades. Trend data are now only available for 9th graders, and only for survey questions that did not change. Most schools elect to participate in the survey; in 2013, this included 84% of public schools in Minnesota.

Although the data are not presented here, the survey is also administered to area learning centers, juvenile correction facilities and private schools electing to participate.

Geographic Level: State, Region, and County

Aggregated data at the state and county level do not reveal disparities that may exist within a given geographic area.

Frequency: Data collected and reported every three years

Characteristics: The results of the MSS are also available at a county level. Data Privacy requirements mandate that data is presented in a manner such that no individual student can be identified through the presentation of the results. As part of the Data Privacy practices, the results are also presented in a manner that no individual school district could be identified through the results. Therefore, for counties that have only one school district, the results are not presented. Results are also withheld for counties in which the minimum number for student participation was not met.

The MSS is a “census” of schools, not a sample. The school districts get their own data. Fifth-graders were not asked all substance use questions. Some school districts do not participate, and student participation within the school district can vary widely. These data are self-reported.

Data Source: Impaired Driving Facts

Description: Impaired Driving Facts provides statistics focused on incidences and consequences of impaired driving in Minnesota.

Sponsored by: Office of Traffic Safety, MN Department of Public Safety

Geographic Level: State, County

Aggregated data at the state and county level do not reveal disparities that may exist within a given geographic area.

Frequency: Data collected and reported annually

Characteristics: Impaired Driving Facts provides detailed information about impaired driving incidents/arrests, crashes, injuries and fatalities. Alcohol-related injuries are less well documented than fatalities. Property damage only crashes are least likely to be reported to law enforcement officials. Costs are associated with the county in which the crash occurred.

Data Source: Office of Traffic Safety, MN Department of Public Safety

Description: Statistics on driving while intoxicated by county of arrest and by county of residence were obtained by request.  These statistics are not available on the Office of Traffic Safety website.

Characteristics: Alcohol-related injuries and property damage only crashes are less well documented than fatalities. Total Crashes for each County not available for 2003. Crash Facts is comparable across all states as a component of Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS).

Data Source: Alcohol-attributable fractions: Alcohol-Attributable Disease Impact (ARDI)

Description: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) calculate Alcohol-Related Disease Impact (ARDI) estimates of alcohol-related deaths due to alcohol consumption. To do this, ARDI either calculates or uses pre-determined estimates of Alcohol-Attributable Fractions (AAFs)—that is, the proportion of deaths from various causes that are due to alcohol. These AAFs are then multiplied by the number of deaths caused by a specific condition (e.g., liver cancer) to obtain the number of alcohol-attributable deaths.

Sponsored by: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

Geographic Level: Nation

Frequency: ARDI estimates were last calculated for 2015-2019

Characteristics: ARDI is based on a large-scale, national study. Alcohol-attributable fractions vary with prevalence of substance use, and are less reliable for smaller populations. Care should be taken when applying alcohol-attributable fractions at the county level.

Data Source: Natality and Mortality data: Minnesota Center for Health Statistics

Description: Minnesota Health Statistics Annual Summary includes the number of deaths in a county classified by ICD 10 codes.  Natality include the percent of births to women who reported smoking during pregnancy by county.

Description:

DAANES includes data on all private- and public-pay treatment facility admissions and discharges. Data were obtained by request from the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division (ADAD) of the Minnesota Department of Human Services.

Sponsored by: Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division (ADAD), Minnesota Department of Human Services

Geographic Level: State, Region, County

Frequency: Data reported annually

Characteristics: Detoxification facilities report using a separate system, and therefore information about detox admissions in Minnesota is not available through the DAANES system. The DAANES intake form incorporates a portion of the Federal Client Data Set. The history form incorporates an expanded version of the alcohol and other drug (AOD) use items from the Client Data Set and an arrest summary. The discharge form includes discharge status, referrals, payment source and charges, inpatient days, and outpatient treatment hours. According to Minnesota Statutes, Section 254B.05, subdivision 1, chemical dependency providers must participate in DAANES to be eligible for payment under the Consolidated Chemical Dependency Treatment Fund (CCDTF). Approximately 35 detoxification facilities also report voluntarily on a separate DAANES system
