1. Kothapalli, Prasanthi Bhavana. Analysis of Drug Use Dataset to Aid Drug Abuse Prevention in Youth.

Degree: MS, Department of Computer Science, 2019, California State Polytechnic University – Pomona

Drug addiction is a chronic disease characterized by drug seeking and use that is compulsive, or difficult to control, despite harmful consequences. At the same time, it is treatable and can be successfully managed. Moreover, drug use and addiction are preventable. This project uses a dataset from National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) Archive to explore the pattern of drug use and addiction among the youth, middle age and old age people with age groups ranging from 12 years to 65+ years. The dataset covers 13 drugs across 17 age groups. The data was read in and visualized. Distribution graphs including line graphs and bar graphs were plotted to help in analyze drug use and possibly prevent it in the future. The findings of this study suggest that the drug use patterns in the younger people differed from that of the older people. Some drug use patterns for example, cocaine and heroin use, show very low values compared to the pattern of other drugs. However all models significantly differed from the alcohol use model which has the highest values throughout all the 17 age groups. This project concludes by analysis of data visualizations that illustrate drug use and frequency among different age groups, particularly the youth, to aid drug abuse prevention at an earlier stage.
