Observatorio

(Substance Abuse in Puerto Rico)

This site contains a collection of epidemiological data on substance use and abuse in Puerto Rico. In particular, this site contains detailed data from Consulta Juvenil, a school survey that Mental Health and Anti-Addiction Services Administration and researchers from the University of Puerto Rico continuously conduct since 1990. Consulta Juvenil collects information on substance use, violent behavior, sexual behavior, suicide, and other problem behaviors among adolescents in Puerto Rico. Observatorio also includes data from events such as people who use services for substance abuse, persons arrested for drug-law violations and substance use related deaths.
