States Categorized into Five Groups from Lowest to Highest Estimate, by Age Group: Percentages, Annual Averages Based on 2013 and 2014 NSDUHs
Table Age Group Quintile 1 Quintile 2 Quintile 3 Quintile 4 Quintile 5
-- Not available.
NOTE: This table shows the boundaries used to create the maps shown in the document named "2013-2014 NSDUH National Maps of Prevalence Estimates, by State" at http://www.samhsa.gov/data/. Maps for the 18 or older age group are available only for the following measures: serious mental illness (SMI), any mental illness (AMI), serious thoughts of suicide, and depression (i.e., major depressive episode or MDE).
NOTE: State estimates (which are based on a survey-weighted hierarchical Bayes estimation approach) fall into one of five quintiles according to their ranking. Because 51 states were ranked for each measure, the middle quintile was assigned to 11 states, and the remaining quintiles were assigned 10 states each. In some cases, a "quintile" could have more or fewer states than desired because two (or more) states had the same estimate (to two decimal places). When such ties occurred at the "boundary" between two quintiles, all of the states with the same estimate were conservatively assigned to the lower quintile. Those states with the highest estimates for a given measure are in red, with the exception of the perceptions of risk measures, for which the lowest perceptions of great risk are in red. Those states with the lowest estimates are in white, with the exception of the perceptions of risk measures, for which the highest perceptions of great risk are in white. The upper and lower limits of each quintile shown in the map legend collectively define a continuum and are not necessarily the actual values of a particular state. Tables containing specific estimates for these states are available on the 2013-2014 NSDUH state web page at http://www.samhsa.gov/data/.
1The average annual incidence estimates for first use of marijuana were low for the 26 or older age group and had an abbreviated range; therefore, no state grouping was made for this age group.
