Access 2013 National Survey on Drug Use and Health Data

Access 2013 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) Data
You're invited to access the public use data and documentation files for the 2013 NSDUH. The data contain new variables related to:
  • Military status. Respondents were asked about service in a Reserve component of the military and about military veteran status. Respondents who had previously been in the U.S. Armed Forces were asked three additional questions about whether they had ever been on active duty; the period in which they served in active duty; and whether they served in a military combat zone or an area where they drew imminent danger pay or hostile fire pay.
  • Marijuana usage. Respondents indicating past-year marijuana use were asked whether any or all of their past-year marijuana use was recommended by a doctor or other health care professional. A variable is also available to indicate whether respondents were living in a state in which a law allowing use of marijuana for medical reasons was in effect at the time of the interview.
  • Height and weight. Respondents were asked about height and weight, which were used to create a new recoded body mass index variable.
  • Screening questions during health care visits.Respondents were asked about screening for tobacco, alcohol, or other drug use as part of their health care visits in the past 12 months, and about discussions they had with health care professionals about their tobacco, alcohol, or other drug use as part of their health care visits.
  • Geography. A geographic variable identifying respondents residing in American Indian areas is available for the first time in the NSDUH public use file.
The 2013 NSDUH restricted-use data are planned for release via the R-DAS and Data Portal early next year.
