NOTE: SIG=Significant difference between 2003-2004 and 2002-2003 percentages; ns=not significant   at the 0.05 level

 

NOTE: Serious Psychological Distress (SPD) was referred to as Serious Mental Illness (SMI) in prior NSDUH reports.

NOTE: Estimates are based on a survey-weighted hierarchical Bayes estimation approach.

NOTE: Data for Serious Psychological Disorder (SPD) are not defined for 12 to 17 year olds; therefore, the "Total" estimate reflects those aged 18 or older.

a Difference between the 2003-2004 estimate and the 2002-2003 estimate is statistically significant at the 0.05 level.

b Difference between the 2003-2004 estimate and the 2002-2003 estimate is statistically significant at the 0.10 level.
