The 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) public use file is the latest in the NSDUH series. NSDUH is the primary source of statistical information on the use of tobacco, alcohol, prescription drugs, and illicit drugs by the U.S. civilian, noninstitutionalized population aged 12 or older. The survey also includes several series of questions that focus on mental health issues. In 2015, the NSDUH underwent a partial redesign to improve the quality of the data collected and to address current substance use and mental health policy and research needs.
