- NSDUH SMI data is based on DSM-IV criteria but it cannot be used to estimate the prevalence of specific mental disorders in adults, such as major depression, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorders. SMI estimates are based on a predictive model and are not direct measures of diagnostic status.
- Poverty level is calculated as a percentage of the Census Bureau’s poverty threshold by dividing the respondent’s total family income by the poverty threshold amount. If the total income is at or below the Census Bureau’s poverty threshold for a family of that size, then that family is considered to be living in poverty.

- For those aged 18 or older and 26 or older, there are significant differences across all levels of poverty at the .05 level.
