NOTE: Prior to the 2012 NSDUH, 2008 NSDUH estimates for past year any mental illness (AMI), mild mental illness (LMI), and moderate mental illness (MMI) as well as major depressive episode (MDE) among adults aged 18 or older were based only on the 2008 World Health Organization Disability Assessment Schedule (WHODAS) sample data (see Section B.4 of Appendix B in the Results from the 2008 National Survey on Drug Use and Health: National Findings). Because of revisions in the estimation procedures, past year AMI, LMI, and MMI estimates among adults aged 18 or older are now based on the full 2008 sample. While the estimates themselves were revised, the data in this table, however, reflect the underlying data used in estimation prior to the revision. The MDE estimates for adults aged 18 or older remain unchanged. For details on the methodology, see the NSDUH short report titled Revised Estimates of Mental Illness from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health at http://samhsa.gov/data/default.aspx.
1 Analysis weights for both the full sample and the WHODAS sample were poststratified to U.S. census population estimates of the civilian, noninstitutionalized population aged 18 or older for various demographic domains. Estimated population totals for the WHODAS sample may differ slightly for demographic domains that were not controlled or were controlled differently in the poststratification. Ten adults who broke off their interviews prior to their split-sample assignment are excluded.
2 Respondents could indicate multiple types of health insurance; thus, these response categories are not mutually exclusive.
3 CHIP is the Children's Health Insurance Program. Individuals aged 19 or younger are eligible for this plan.
4 Other Health Insurance is defined as having Medicare, CHAMPUS, TRICARE, CHAMPVA, the VA, military health care, or any other type of health insurance.
5 The Other Employment category includes retired persons, disabled persons, homemakers, students, or other persons not in the labor force.

NOTE: Prior to the 2012 NSDUH, 2008 NSDUH estimates for past year any mental illness (AMI), mild mental illness (LMI), and moderate mental illness (MMI) as well as major depressive episode (MDE) among adults aged 18 or older were based only on the 2008 World Health Organization Disability Assessment Schedule (WHODAS) sample data (see Section B.4 of Appendix B in the Results from the 2008 National Survey on Drug Use and Health: National Findings). Because of revisions in the estimation procedures, past year AMI, LMI, and MMI estimates among adults aged 18 or older are now based on the full 2008 sample. While the estimates themselves were revised, the data in this table, however, reflect the underlying data used in estimation prior to the revision. The MDE estimates for adults aged 18 or older remain unchanged. For details on the methodology, see the NSDUH short report titled Revised Estimates of Mental Illness from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health at http://samhsa.gov/data/default.aspx.
1 Analysis weights for both the full sample and the WHODAS sample were poststratified to U.S. census population estimates of the civilian, noninstitutionalized population aged 18 or older for various demographic domains. Estimated population totals for the WHODAS sample may differ slightly for demographic domains that were not controlled or were controlled differently in the poststratification. Ten adults who broke off their interviews prior to their split-sample assignment are excluded.
2 Government Assistance is defined as one or more household family members having received Supplemental Security Income (SSI), cash assistance (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, TANF), noncash assistance, or food stamps.
