2020 NSDUH Detailed Tables

Description:

These detailed tables present 2019 and 2020 national estimates from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH). They provide comprehensive current statistics on substance use, mental health, and treatment in the United States. Changes in survey methodology mean the 2020 values are not comparable to past NSDUH estimates, although 2019 values and estimates over time are included for reference. The Tables include population estimates, percentages, standard errors, and more.

The tables are based on the NSDUH survey, which is asked of people aged 12 years old or older in the civilian, noninstitutionalized population. Some indicators are only available for youths aged 12 to 17 or adults aged 18 or older; others are available for both, but the estimates cannot be combined. In the tables, indicators are broken out by a variety of demographic, geographic, and economic variables.

Topics covered include: drug, alcohol, nicotine, and tobacco product use and initiation; substance use disorder (SUD); substance use risk and protective factors; availability of substance use treatment; any mental illness (AMI) and serious mental illness (SMI); major depressive episode (MDE); suicidal thoughts and behaviors; serious psychological distress (SPD); mental health service utilization; treatment for depression; and co-occurrence of mental health issues and substance use disorders. These tables also present the perceived effects of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic on substance use and mental health.

Section 1 covers the use of illicit drugs and both use and misuse of prescription drugs. Section 2 covers use of alcohol, tobacco, and nicotine. Section 3 covers risk and protective factors for substance use, including perceived harm from use and substance availability, as well as youth environmental factors. Section 4 covers initiation of substance use, and age at first use. Section 5 covers substance use disorder and treatment. Section 6 various other topics in substance use and mental health not covered by other sections. Section 7 covers trends related to substance use. Section 8 covers adult mental health and treatment. Section 9 covers youth mental health and treatment. Section 10 includes trend tables related to adult mental health and treatment. Section 11 includes trends related to youth mental health and treatment. Section 12 tables present information on the denominators used in the other tables, including unweighted sample sizes. Section 13 covers topics related to the COVID-19 pandemic.1
