1 Refers to lifetime use of a needle to inject a drug that was not prescribed, or that was taken only for the experience or feeling it caused.
2 These drug estimates are generated from data collected on a "noncore" module of the NSDUH questionnaire. Therefore, these estimates may be somewhat inconsistent with drug estimates based on data collected from the "core" modules because NSDUH data are not edited for consistency across the "core" and "noncore" modules of the interview.
3 Estimates of Stimulant Needle Use, Methamphetamine Needle Use, and the Needle Use summary variable include data from methamphetamine items added in 2005 and 2006 and are not comparable with estimates presented in prior NSDUH reports. See Section B.4.6 in Appendix B of the Results from the 2007 National Survey on Drug Use and Health: National Findings.

1 Refers to lifetime use of a needle to inject a drug that was not prescribed, or that was taken only for the experience or feeling it caused.
2 These drug estimates are generated from data collected on a "noncore" module of the NSDUH questionnaire. Therefore, these estimates may be somewhat inconsistent with drug estimates based on data collected from the "core" modules because NSDUH data are not edited for consistency across the "core" and "noncore" modules of the interview.
3 Estimates of Stimulant Needle Use, Methamphetamine Needle Use, and the Needle Use summary variable include data from methamphetamine items added in 2005 and 2006 and are not comparable with estimates presented in prior NSDUH reports. See Section B.4.6 in Appendix B of the Results from the 2007 National Survey on Drug Use and Health: National Findings.
