SAMHSA Partners With NCHS To Make Restricted NSDUH Data Available

October 2, 2018

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration has partnered with the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) to host restricted data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH). Federal Statistical Research Data Centers (RDCs) are protected facilities that provide secure access to a range of restricted-use microdata for statistical purposes only. SAMHSA is the most recent federal partner to work with NCHS in making NSDUH microdata available to approved researchers via these RDCs.

Eligible researchers may now apply for access to these data. For more information please visit the FAQ page.
