Proposed Project: 2017 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.
    While NSDUH must be updated periodically to reflect changing 
substance use and mental health issues and to continue producing 
current data, for the 2017 NSDUH only the following minor changes are 
planned: (1) Updated questions so respondents who report no use of 
alcohol are not asked about misuse of prescription drugs with alcohol; 
and (2) included other minor wording changes to improve the flow of the 
interview, increase respondent comprehension or to be consistent with 
text in other questions.
    As with all NSDUH/NHSDA \1\ surveys conducted since 1999, the 
sample size of the survey for 2017 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 in Table 1.

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