 Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN), 2004: National Estimates of Drug-Related ED Visits
DAWN estimates for 2004 are the first to be based on the new, redesigned sample of hospitals, which covers the entire U.S. Estimates for 2004 also cover a full 12-month period for the first time since the redesign of DAWN was introduced.
DAWN estimates that, for 2004, 461,809 (CI: 375,820 to 547,798) drug-related ED visits involved alcohol in combination with another drug or alcohol alone in a patient under the age of 21.
Since DAWN relies on a sample of hospitals, each estimate produced from the DAWN ED sample data is subject to sampling variability, the so-called "margin of error." This is the variation in the estimate that would be observed naturally if different samples were drawn from the same population using the same procedures.
