We have two data analysis systems (PDAS for public use and the restricted-use RDAS) available for researchers. As part of PDAS, there is also a NSDUH SAE tool to quickly see data by state and substate areas.
We make datasets available for public use in multiple formats: ASCII, SAS, SPSS, Stata, R, and TSV. Select a study series to go to the SAMHDA site to download files.
SAMHSA has partnered with the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) to host retricted-use National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) data at their Federal Statistical Research Data Centers (RDCs). RDCs are secure facilities that provide access to a range of restricted-use microdata for statistical purposes. SAMHSA is the most recent federal partner to work with NCHS in making NSDUH restricted-use microdata available to approved researchers at RDC sites.
