A system of measurements, the San Diego Quality of Life Indices (SDCQOLI), is being developed and reported in response to the need of successful prevention of the use and abuse of alcohol, tobacco, and illicit drugs (ATOD) and ATOD service delivery. The purpose of the SDCQOLI is to serve as a utility for public policy applications (ATOD prevention and others), both community-sponsored and initiated by the San Diego County and local governments, in order to achieve the mission of the County of San Diego "...to improve the region's Quality of Life" (County of San Diego...).
