The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Data Archive (SAMHDA) now has the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 2009 (NSDUH)  series data available.  Formerly known as the National Household Survey on Drug Abuse, the surveys look at the use of illicit drugs, alcohol, and tobacco in U.S. household members 12 and up.  It covers abuse treatment history and perceived need for treatment, and includes questions from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) of Mental Disorders that allow diagnostic criteria to be applied.  There are quick tables that require no log-in along with online analysis and data downloads that do require logging in.

This Archive is part of the ICPSR (Inter-University Consortium of Political and Social Research) membership for Auburn University.  Auburn University students, faculty, and staff only may create an account that will allow access to the membership-only data by clicking here.

Please contact Barbara Bishop at bishoba@auburn.edu or (334) 844-1690 if you need more information regarding SAMHDA or ICPSR.
