Alcohol use trends

Rapid City's community and school prevention efforts have made an impact! You can see the downward trend (brown color). This downward trend is especially powerful when you look at the comparison data between national and South Dakota alcohol use during the past month.

Tobacco use trends

Tobacco use has been declining across the country, in the state, and right here in Rapid City. At the last survey date, Rapid City's use of tobacco was lower than both the national and state usage rates. Prevention efforts do make a difference!
