Toxicology Lab Data Epidemiology

This project is funded by the Washington State Patrol’s Toxicology Laboratory to investigate and analyze the epidemiology of street and prescription drug use in counties throughout Washington. Specific attention will be given to reviewing the cause and manner of deaths involving methamphetamine, and the significance of methamphetamine use in impaired driving populations. Multiple data sources will be utilized including mortality, DUI, and law enforcement drug seizure data. Analysis will examine temporal and geographic trends in drug use and the impacts of drug use.
