For each year in which TEDS data have been compiled, Quick Statistics produces summary tables of admissions by primary substance of abuse2 and demographic characteristics (sex, age group, race, and ethnicity). Tables can be run for individual States and for all States combined. An important feature of TEDS Quick Statistics is that it provides access to as yet unpublished data for individual States for the most recently completed calendar year. Because some States report data to TEDS as late as the end of the year following the admission year, there is typically a lag of 2 years before a complete year of data for all States can be aggregated for analysis and publication. With TEDS Quick Statistics, however, preliminary data are available for individual States that have submitted their data early. Currently, 2003 data are available for many States, and 2004 data for a few States. Since data for the total United States can only be assembled after all States have reported to TEDS, these data are not yet available for 2003 or 2004.
Step 2: Select "Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS)."
Step 3: Select the year of data that interests you from the drop-down menu. Each year must be run separately.

Figure 2 shows the results of a TEDS inquiry for the State of Maryland. The first row of the table includes the total number and percent of admissions in the State of Maryland by the primary substance of abuse. Subsequent sections of the table include the percentage of admissions by sex, age at admission, race, and ethnicity by primary substance of abuse.

Step 2: Select "National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (N-SSATS)."
Step 3: Select the year of data that interests you from a drop-down menu. Each year must be run separately. Figure 3 shows the results of an N-SSATS inquiry for the State of Maryland. This 3-page profile details the characteristics of substance abuse treatment facilities and provides information on the number of persons in treatment on March 31, 2003. Tables included in this profile present data on facility ownership, facility focus, types of care and services offered, types of payment accepted, and facility licensing.
