Risk and Protection Profiles for Substance Abuse Prevention for Washington State and its communities released

The Washington State Department of Social and Health Services has released the January 2019 CORE Profiles, a comprehensive collection of community indicators for Washington. The Smarter Balanced Assessment data have been updated to 2018, all other indicators to 2017.

The Profiles, comprised of over 450 reports, provide annual trends for the last 5 to 12 years for the state and every county, school district, and locale. The indicators cover such topics as child and family health, availability of drugs and substance abuse, criminal justice involvement among teens and adults, academic performance of children and youth, and socioeconomic conditions in your community. Nearly 50 indicators are presented in graphs, maps and tables; the reports are available in PDF and Excel. The profiles are updated twice a year.
