Diagnosis of Substance Use Disorder Among Incarcerated Offenders
Group: Minnesota Department of Corrections
A total of 2646 male and 362 female Minnesota inmates was evaluated for substance use disorders in 2002. In general, this is a young population as indicated by the fact that the mean and median ages are 31 and 30 years respectively. Ages ranged from 18 to 79 but more than a quarter were under the age of 24 years. On average, female inmates are approximately two years older than males. This is a statistically significant differential (p < .001). Caucasians comprise the majority (53%) of the inmates, and African-Americans constitute the largest minority with 30% of the population. American Indians and Hispanics/Latinos comprised 8% and 6% of the population respectively. The remaining cases were Asians or persons of mixed ethnicity
