2021-2022 NSDUH State Estimates of Substance Use and Mental Disorders

Description:

Find state-level estimates for 35 measures of substance use and mental health from the 2021-2022 National Surveys on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH). These estimates are based on small area estimation (SAE) methods in which state-level NSDUH data are combined with other data from smaller geographies. The combined data are used to create modeled state estimates of the civilian, noninstitutionalized population ages 12 and older.

Along with the estimates, the collection includes an overview of the estimation methodology, a review of other state-level substance use and mental health data sources, and a document describing the groups used for mapping. The data are available in several forms: images of national maps and tables both overall and by age. There are also tables of p-values indicating whether differences between particular geographies are statistically significant.

The indicators are presented in the following 37 tables:
