Tools for Communities

Survey Data - Indiana Youth Survey

The IPRC has conducted the Indiana Survey, and has managed and reported the resulting data, since 1991. The purpose of this project is to provide data for state and local planning with respect to the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs (ATOD), gambling behaviors, and risk and protective factors.

Survey Data - Indiana College Survey

The Indiana Collegiate Action Network (ICAN), in conjunction with the Indiana Prevention Resource Center (IPRC) developed a new survey instrument in 2009, called the Indiana College Substance Use Survey, to collect information on items of interest to Indiana colleges. These reports summarize the findings of the annual Indiana College Substance Use Survey that is conducted by the Indiana Prevention Resource Center in the springs every year. Findings on the prevalence of alcohol, tobacco and other drug use, consequences of use, alcohol availability, and student perceptions of peer behaviors are presented.

County Epidemiological Data

The service previous called PREV-STAT has been improved to County Epidemiological Data. This service uses GIS software and data from a variety of sources to create county profiles, including maps and tables.
Currently the newest data are available to search on various variables.
