Adults Drinking and Driving in the Past Month

Value: 6.7 percent
Measurement
Period:
2011
Location: County : Douglas
Comparison: U.S. Value
Categories: Health / Substance Abuse
What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the percentage of adults who report one or more occasions in the past month of driving after perhaps having too much to drink.
Why this is important: 
Though episodes of driving after drinking too much ("drinking and driving") have gone down by 30% during the past 5 years, it remains a serious problem in the US. Alcohol-impaired drivers* are involved in about 1 in 3 crash deaths, resulting in nearly 11,000 deaths in 2009.
Technical Note:  The regional value is compared to the national value; national data are derived from the PRC National Health Survey.
