The Arizona Substance Abuse Epidemiology Work Group (Epi Work Group) seeks to develop the capacity of community coalitions, policy advisors and other key stakeholders to make policy and programming decisions informed by data. This is achieved through development of the Community Data Project (CDP) and by providing training and technical assistance to guide a data-driven decision-making process that utilizes the CDP and other data sources.

COMMUNITY DATA SOURCES

The Arizona community data websites provide a great starting point for understanding issues, relationships, and trends in the community. The three geographic levels of data available (for the most part) can be broken down by state, county, and coalition. The types of output levels that can be accessed, visualized, and downloaded are tables, graphs, maps, and reports.

Note: Not all data is available in every form, at every community level (e.g., zip code, street address, etc.) or are always up-to-date. This is due to difficulties in real time, up-to-date data collection, different web-based platforms, or there may be legal or confidentiality issues in the reporting of data, especially in small populations. There are likely to be time delays in the availability of data.

COMMUNITY DATA TRAINING

Facts & Figures Community Data Training

The use of community, county, and state-level data is important to effectively serve local communities and allocate resources. The Arizona Substance Abuse Epidemiology Work Group (Epi Work Group), under the direction of Governor Ducey’s Office of Youth, Faith and Family and in partnership with Arizona State University Southwest Interdisciplinary Research Center, has developed curriculum and training modules designed to introduce participants to the Community Data Project (CDP) and other data to empower them to conduct needs assessments, write grant applications, substantiate best practices, inform the public, and design effective programming evaluations.

Using the CDP and additional substance abuse related websites, this training will introduce participants to data elements, risk and protective factors, and other basic statistical measures. The training will provide participants with an opportunity to actively engage and process the information and materials in a cooperative group environment.
