The map shows the rate of drug offences in Saskatoon neighbourhoods in 2003. Neighbourhoods with the lowest rate of drug offences (0 to 1.0) are represented by a light green, those with low rates of drug offences (1.1 to 2.0) are represented by a slightly darker green, neighbourhoods with moderate rates of drug offences (2.1 to 3.0) are represented by a darker green, neighbourhoods with high rates of drug offences (3.1 to 7.0) are represented by a dark green and neighbourhoods with the highest rates of drug offences (7.1 to 25.0) are represented by a darker green.

The map demonstrates that the areas with high and the highest rates of drug offences are dispersed around the city. The areas with low and the lowest rates of drug offences are generally seen around the outer areas of the city.
