The Public Use Files (PUF) are relevant to estimates of substance use and mental health issues from the 2014 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), an annual survey of the civilian, noninstitutionalized population of the United States aged 12 years old or older. NSDUH is the primary source of statistical information on the use of illegal drugs, alcohol, and tobacco by the U.S. civilian, noninstitutionalized population aged 12 or older.
The survey also includes several modules of questions that focus on mental health issues.
State estimates for 15 measures of substance use and mental disorders based on the combined 2014 and 2015 National Surveys on Drug Use and Health (NSDUHs) are provided. The NSDUH is an annual survey of the civilian, noninstutionalized population of the United States aged 12 years or older. State and regional estimates are based on a small area estimation (SAE) methodology in which state-level NSDUH data are combined with county and census block group/tract-level data from the state.
