In 2009/10 the overall search rate for drugs across the population as a
whole was 10 searches per 1000 people.
*For those from the white population it was 7 per 1000, increasing to 14
per 1000 for those identifying as mixed race, 18 per 1000 for those
identifying as Asian and to 45 per 1000 for those identifying as black.  *
