Find reports that present findings and data for U.S. states based on results of the combined 2016 and 2017 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH).
NSDUH is an annual survey of the U.S. civilian, noninstitutionalized population ages 12 years or older. The combined 2016 and 2017 NSDUH reports provide state estimates for select measures of substance use and mental health outcomes by age group (e.g., ages 12 or older, 12 to 17, 18 to 25, and 26 or older and 12 to 20 for alcohol measures). State and regional estimates are based on a small area estimation (SAE) methodology in which state-level NSDUH data are combined with county and sub-county level census data from the state.
The 2016-2017 NSDUH state-specific tables provide prevalence estimates for each state and estimated totals by age group, along with tables for the four census regions and the entire United States. You can access data for the entire United States, each state, or each region by clicking links in the report’s table of contents.
The 2016-2017 NSDUH State Prevalence Estimates (PDF, Excel) provide prevalence estimates and 95% confidence intervals by age group. CSV files can also be downloaded.
The 2016-2017 NSDUH Estimated Totals by State provides the estimated totals and 95% confidence intervals by age group. CSV files can also be downloaded.
A comparison of 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 NSDUH State Prevalence Estimates (PDF, HTML) provides prevalence estimates by age group.
A comparison of 2008-2009 and 2016-2017 NSDUH State Prevalence Estimates (PDF, HTML) provides prevalence estimates by age group.
State versus other states and regional comparisons are available as p-value tables in a zipped file of CSV files and Excel formats. A Guide to P-Value Tables is also available.
The survey also includes maps for certain estimates and detailed tables including percentages and counts for each state, census region, and the nation, by age group.
The 2016-2017 NSDUH National Maps of Prevalence Estimates by State (PDF, HTML) show 2016-2017 estimates, sorted from lowest to highest for each measure, and divided into five categories. More information about quintiles used is available (PDF, HTML).
State and regional estimates are based on a small area estimation methodology in which state-level NSDUH data are combined with county and census block group/tract-level data from the state.
The 2016-2017 NSDUH: Guide to State Tables and Summary of Small Area Estimation Methodology Report (PDF, HTML) is a guide to the development and presentation of 2016-2017 state estimates. A summary of the methodology is included as well as sample sizes, response rates, and population estimates.
The 2016-2017 NSDUH: Other Sources of State-level Data report provides a brief description of the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) and presents a comparison of state-level BRFSS and NSDUH prevalence estimates for alcohol and cigarette use among people ages 18 or older.
