May is Mental Health Awareness Month 2017, and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Data Archive (SAMHDA) provides several key resources and tools for behavioral health researchers.
SAMHDA offers public-use data files (PUFs) to assist researchers in this critical area of public health. Visit http://datafiles.samhsa.gov/ for more information.
Through SAMHDA’s recently-enhanced Public-use Data Analysis System (PDAS), users can perform online analyses to create crosstabs and perform logistic regression from a web browser, and can download their results.
Check out PDAS at http://pdas.samhsa.gov to explore the many available PUFs and try out the improved PDAS tool.
