Proposed Project: 2006 National Survey on Drug Use and Health--(OMB No. 
0930-0110)--Revision

    The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), formerly the 
National Household Survey on Drug Abuse (NHSDA), is a survey of the 
civilian, noninstitutionalized population of the United States 12 years 
old and older. The data are used to determine the prevalence of use of 
tobacco products, alcohol, illicit substances, and illicit use of 
prescription drugs. The results are used by SAMHSA, ONDCP, Federal 
government agencies, and other organizations and researchers to 
establish policy, direct program activities, and better allocate 
resources.
    For the 2006 NSDUH, additional questions are being planned 
regarding self-help drug treatment, use of additional hallucinogens, 
prescription drugs and over the counter medications, respondent's place 
of residence, and alcohol consumption practices. To maintain the 
respondent burden at 60 minutes per interview, a few questions will be 
deleted. The remaining modular components of the questionnaire will 
remain essentially unchanged except for minor modifications to wording.
    As with all NSDUH/NHSDA surveys conducted since 1999, the sample 
size of the survey for 2006 will be sufficient to permit prevalence 
estimates for each of the fifty states and the District of Columbia.
    The total annual burden estimate is shown below:
