NSDUH State Result Reports

NSDUH is an annual survey of the U.S. civilian, noninstitutionalized population ages 12 years or older. The combined 2013 and 2014 NSDUH reports provide state estimates for 25 measures of substance use and mental health outcomes. State and regional estimates are based on a small area estimation (SAE) methodology in which state-level NSDUH data are combined with county and sub-county level census data from the state.

The 2013-2014 NSDUH State Prevalence Estimates (PDF | 997 KB) provide prevalence estimates and 95% confidence intervals for people ages 12 or older, 12 to 17, 18 to 25, and 26 or older. There are also estimates for people ages 12 to 20 for two alcohol measures.

The 2013-2014 NSDUH Estimated Totals by State (PDF | 243 KB, XLSX | 210 KB) provides the estimated totals and 95% confidence intervals for people ages 12 or older, 12 to 17, 18 to 25, 26 or older, and 18 or older.

State and Regional Methodology

State and regional estimates are based on a small area estimation methodology in which state-level NSDUH data are combined with county and census block group/tract-level data from the state.

The 2013-2014 NSDUH: Guide to State Tables and Summary of Small Area Estimation Methodology report (also available in PDF | 795 KB) is a guide to the development and presentation of 2013-2014 state estimates. A summary of the methodology is included as well as sample sizes, response rates, and population estimates.
