2013 Drug Testing Index - 25th Anniversary Edition

Drug use among American workers has declined dramatically over the past 25 years. An unprecedented analysis of more than 125 million workplace urine drug tests has revealed that positivity rates have declined by:

  • 74% for the combined US workforce with rates dropping from 13.6% in 1988 to 3.5% in 2012
  • 38% for federally mandated safety-sensitive workers with a decline from 2.6% in 1992 to 1.6% in 2012
  • 60% for the general workforce, declining from 10.3% in 1992 to 4.1% in 2012

The Drug Testing Index (DTI), which began reporting on drug testing data following the Drug-Free Workplace Act, has been the industry's longest standing, most consistent and reliable source of data and insight into drug use patterns within the U.S. workforce. In this landmark edition, we share graphical analysis of the data and a 25-year timeline which tracks the evolution of our industry, notes milestones in drug testing, and demonstrates how the passage of the Drug-Free Workplace Act has coincided with dramatic declines as employers have adopted drug education and monitoring programs.
