ISAC Releases Inaugural Research Brief on Drug and Alcohol Related Crime
March 6, 2024

The Idaho Statistical Analysis Center (ISAC) is pleased to announce the release of the first issue of its new research brief series on drug and alcohol related crime in Idaho. Drug & Alcohol Related Crime Trends, 2013 – 2022 presents analysis of data from the Idaho Incident-Based Reporting System (IIBRS), focusing on the 10 most recent years of available data (2013 to 2022). The brief includes state-level data analysis, as well as county-level arrest rates by drug type for 2022.

Some key findings:

  • Although the rate of total drug and alcohol offenses fluctuated slightly between 2013 (17.6 offenses per 1,000 residents) and 2022 (18.2), the drug offense rate increased 31% during that time (from 10.3 to 13.5) while the alcohol offense rate decreased 36% (from 7.3 to 4.7).
  • In 2022, a quarter (25%) of all offenses reported to IIBRS by law enforcement were drug or alcohol offenses, up from 14% in 2013 and 9% in 2005 (the lowest point in that 18-year span).
  • Demographic data indicates that drug and alcohol arrestees tended to be older in 2022 (average arrestee age was 33.6 years old) than in 2013 (28.6 years old).
  • A larger share of arrestees were women (30% in 2022, compared to 27% in 2013) and racial/ethnic minorities (68% of arrestees were White and non-Hispanic in 2022, compared to 76% in 2013).
  • The percentage of person/property crime offenders suspected of being under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs during the commission of those crimes rose to about 10% in 2022 (up from 7% in 2013).

The full research brief is available in the ISAC Publication Library. Additionally, readers can explore the full dataset using ISAC’s Crime in Idaho Data Dashboard.
