NOTE: Estimates for 1971 through 1977 for youths aged 12 to 17 and for adults aged 26 to 34 may differ from estimates for these age groups for these survey years that were published in other NSDUH reports. The estimates shown here for these survey years have been adjusted to improve their comparability with estimates based on later versions of the NSDUH instrument. Estimates were adjusted by applying the ratio of the adjusted and unadjusted rate from 1979 for each age group to the original estimate.
NOTE: Estimates for 1979 through 1993 have been adjusted for comparability with estimates for 1994 through 1998. Estimates were adjusted by formally modeling the effect of the new methodology, relative to the old methodology, using 1994 data. See Appendix E of the National Household Survey on Drug Abuse: Main Findings 1998 (http://www.oas.samhsa.gov/p0000016.htm#1998) for information on the adjustment procedures.
NOTE: Estimates for 1999 through 2006 have not been adjusted for comparability. See Appendix C of the Results from the 2004 National Survey on Drug Use and Health: National Findings for information on the comparability of the 1999 and later estimates with pre-1999 estimates.

NOTE: The 2002 through 2005 estimates may differ from and are not comparable with estimates presented in prior NSDUH reports. In 2006, estimates of lifetime, past year, and past month methamphetamine use are based on responses to questions in the core Stimulants module, as well as additional questions in the noncore Special Drugs module for respondents who initially did not report methamphetamine use in the core module because they did not consider it to be a prescription drug. For the 2002 through 2005 survey years, a Bernoulli stochastic imputation procedure was used to generate adjusted estimates comparable with the 2006 estimates. See Section B.4.6 in Appendix B of the Results from the 2006 National Survey on Drug Use and Health: National Findings.

Table 8.45A (REVISED) – Nonmedical Use of Methamphetamine in the Past Month among Persons Aged 12 or Older, by Demographic and Geographic Characteristics: Numbers in Thousands, 2002-2006
Demographic/Geographic Characteristic 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006
*Low precision; no estimate reported.
NOTE: This table was revised in May 2012 due to updates (for details, see the introduction to these 2006 detailed tables).
NOTE: The 2002 through 2005 estimates may differ from and are not comparable with estimates presented in prior NSDUH reports. In 2006, estimates of lifetime, past year, and past month methamphetamine use are based on responses to questions in the core Stimulants module, as well as additional questions in the noncore Special Drugs module for respondents who initially did not report methamphetamine use in the core module because they did not consider it to be a prescription drug. For the 2002 through 2005 survey years, a Bernoulli stochastic imputation procedure was used to generate adjusted estimates comparable with the 2006 estimates. See Section B.4.6 in Appendix B of the Results from the 2006 National Survey on Drug Use and Health: National Findings.
a Difference between estimate and 2006 estimate is statistically significant at the 0.05 level.
b Difference between estimate and 2006 estimate is statistically significant at the 0.01 level.
