Supplementary notes

Estimates are annual averages based on combined 2011–2015 NSDUH data or combined 2009–2015 NSDUH data where indicated. These estimates are based solely on the sample, unlike estimates based on the small area estimation procedure as stated below.
State estimates are based on a small area estimation procedure in which state-level National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) data from 2 consecutive survey years are combined with local-area county and census block group/tract-level data from the state. This model-based methodology provides more precise estimates at the state level than those based solely on the sample, particularly for states with smaller sample sizes.
