What are SAMHSA’s criteria to grant access to restricted use data?

We cannot list all criteria here. But here are few important procedural steps: After evaluating whether the application meets certain criteria, a SAMHSA Data Center team member will either approve, provide guidance for revision, or, in certain circumstances, reject the proposal. If approved, the researcher will complete confidentiality training and sign requisite forms and chose a research data center. Output from the data center must match table shells in the proposal and conform to SAMHSA’s objective of maintaining confidentiality for NSDUH survey participants (disclosure risk).
