2009 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) Data and Reports Released
NSDUH is the primary source of information on the use of illegal drugs, alcohol, and tobacco by the civilian, noninstitutionalized population of the United States age 12 or older. The survey is also a source of national estimates on mental health measures such as serious mental illness, other mental illness, depression, and treatment.
The 2009 NSDUH data and documentation files are available for download and online analysis. Also, custom analytic tables can be produced with NSDUH data using Quick Tables—choose from preselected core variables by pointing and clicking from dropdown menus. Results from online analysis or Quick Tables can be copied easily and inserted into documents.
Two reports from the 2009 NSDUH are now available:
National Findings Report—Presents national estimates of rates of use, numbers of users, and other measures related to illicit drugs, alcohol, and tobacco products. The report focuses on trends between 2008 and 2009 and from 2002 to 2009, as well as differences across population subgroups in 2009.
Mental Health Findings (651 KB)—Presents national estimates of the prevalence of past-year mental health disorders and past-year mental health service utilization for youth age 12 to 17 and adults age 18 or older.
