Interactive Data Visualization Tool

Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) trend analyzer

    Our interactive trend analyzer (part of the AOD monitoring project) allows you to explore and compare the impacts and statistical trends of alcohol, cannabis, cocaine, depressants, opioids, stimulants, tobacco, and other drug use for different groups of people in different parts of BC from the years 2007 to 2019. Per Capita Alcohol (PCA) consumption data from the years 2002 to 2020 can be overlayed on the AOD data. You can select from the Data properties and Display properties options to create your own figures and tables.
