This report provides the first release of information from the 2001 National Household Survey on Drug Abuse (NHSDA). This survey is a project of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Initiated in 1971, the NHSDA has become the primary source of information on the use of illicit drugs, alcohol, and tobacco by the civilian, noninstitutionalized population in the United States. The NHSDA interviews approximately 70,000 people age 12 years or older, in every State, over a 12-month period. Because of the size of the survey, it is possible to make relatively precise estimates of many variables of major interest. In addition to extensive questions about the use of substances, the 2001 version of the survey included questions on mental health status and treatment.
