Calculation Notes
For each age group, take the total number of DUI arrests for that age group and divide by the age groupメs population. Multiply by 10,000 for the rate of arrests per 10,000.
Collection Method
Each state agency has a slightly different alpha listing of towns. Most differences occur in the towns whose names involve East, West or South. Be sure the town numbers you are using match the agencyメs numbering system. Some re-ordering may be required.
Importance
DUI arrests are a direct consequence of alcohol misuse.
Strengths
The indicator addresses the degree to which the population age 18 and older received substance abuse treatment services.
