Age of first drug use of 10-25 year olds, 2003-2006 by Region

It inlcudes a chapter on young people, and I’ve been playing about with the data to create some maps using the Many Eyes site, and if you click on the map above you should be taken to a more interactive version.

The same data presented as a bar graph (click on the picture to go to the data).
