1 Mental Health Treatment/Counseling is defined as having received inpatient care or outpatient care or having used prescription medication for problems with emotions, nerves, or mental health. Respondents were not to include treatment for drug or alcohol use. Respondents with unknown treatment/counseling information were excluded. Estimates were based only on responses to items in the Adult Mental Health Service Utilization module.
2 Due to revised editing of 2003 and 2004 outpatient mental health treatment/counseling data, these 2003 estimates may differ slightly from 2003 estimates published in prior NSDUH reports. See Section B.5.2 in Appendix B of the Results from the 2004 National Survey on Drug Use and Health: National Findings.
3 Major Depressive Episode (MDE) is defined as a period of at least 2 weeks when a person experienced a depressed mood or loss of interest or pleasure in daily activities and had a majority of the symptoms for depression as described in the 4th edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV). Respondents with unknown past year MDE data were excluded.
4 Estimates for 2004 in this table are based on a subsample of respondents aged 18 or older, while 2005 and 2006 estimates are based on all respondents aged 18 or older. See Section B.4.5 in Appendix B of the Results from the 2006 National Survey on Drug Use and Health: National Findings.

AGE GROUP
12-17

NOTE: Standard errors for 1971 through 1977 were calculated by multiplying the standard error of the percentage (assuming simple random sampling) by the square root of the estimated “design effect” (i.e., 1.25). See Appendix A of the National Household Survey on Drug Abuse: Main Findings 1979 for further information on these procedures.
NOTE: Estimates for 1971 through 1977 for youths aged 12 to 17 and for adults aged 26 to 34 may differ from estimates for these age groups for these survey years that were published in other NSDUH reports. The estimates shown here for these survey years have been adjusted to improve their comparability with estimates based on later versions of the NSDUH instrument. Estimates were adjusted by applying the ratio of the adjusted and unadjusted rate from 1979 for each age group to the original estimate.
NOTE: Estimates for 1979 through 1993 have been adjusted for comparability with estimates for 1994 through 1998. Estimates were adjusted by formally modeling the effect of the new methodology, relative to the old methodology, using 1994 data. See Appendix E of the National Household Survey on Drug Abuse: Main Findings 1998 (http://www.oas.samhsa.gov/p0000016.htm#1998) for information on the adjustment procedures.
NOTE: Estimates for 1999 through 2006 have not been adjusted for comparability. See Appendix C of the Results from the 2004 National Survey on Drug Use and Health: National Findings for information on the comparability of the 1999 and later estimates with pre-1999 estimates.

NOTE: The 2002 through 2005 estimates may differ from and are not comparable with estimates presented in prior NSDUH reports. In 2006, estimates of lifetime, past year, and past month methamphetamine use are based on responses to questions in the core Stimulants module, as well as additional questions in the noncore Special Drugs module for respondents who initially did not report methamphetamine use in the core module because they did not consider it to be a prescription drug. For the 2002 through 2005 survey years, a Bernoulli stochastic imputation procedure was used to generate adjusted estimates comparable with the 2006 estimates. See Section B.4.6 in Appendix B of the Results from the 2006 National Survey on Drug Use and Health: National Findings.

NOTE: The 2002 through 2005 estimates may differ from and are not comparable with estimates presented in prior NSDUH reports. In 2006, estimates of lifetime, past year, and past month methamphetamine use are based on responses to questions in the core Stimulants module, as well as additional questions in the noncore Special Drugs module for respondents who initially did not report methamphetamine use in the core module because they did not consider it to be a prescription drug. For the 2002 through 2005 survey years, a Bernoulli stochastic imputation procedure was used to generate adjusted estimates comparable with the 2006 estimates.
