Proposed Project: 2014 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (OMB No. 
0930-0110)--Revision

    The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) is a survey of 
the U.S. civilian, non-institutionalized population aged 12 years old 
or 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, the Office of 
National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), Federal government agencies, and 
other organizations and researchers to establish policy, direct program 
activities, and better allocate resources.
    The introduction of a new sample design is planned for the 2014 
NSDUH. In addition to moving towards a proportional allocation by 
state, the 2014 sample design places more sample in the 26 or older age 
groups than in previous designs to more accurately estimate drug use 
and related mental health measures among the aging drug use population. 
An additional stage of selection was also added to aid in the possible 
adoption of address-based sampling in the future. The questionnaire 
content for the 2014 NSDUH will remain identical to what was 
administered in 2013, with the exception of updates to year references 
and the State-specific Medicaid, Children's Health Insurance Program 
(CHIP), and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program 
names. Making minimal changes to the instrument will allow SAMHSA's 
Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality (CBHSQ) to isolate 
the effects of the revised sample design in the 2014 NSDUH and to 
prepare for the 2015 NSDUH redesign.
    As with all NSDUH/NHSDA \1\ surveys conducted since 1999, the 
sample size of the survey for 2014 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 in Table 1.

    \1\ Prior to 2002, the NSDUH was referred to as the National 
Household Survey on Drug Abuse (NHSDA).
