LI Course
Partnership: Alcohol Tobacco and Other Drugs Applied Public Health Statistics Epidemiology
Statement of Purpose and Institute Overview: The purpose of this course is to introduce behavioral health data available from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, including NSDUH, TEDS and DAWN. Particpants will have an opportunity to find reports of interest to their work and develop data points using the data sets. These data sets are a rich resource for national and state behavioral health data and may be used to examine the prevalence and incidence of substance use and mental health issues, as well as identify important gaps in health care access. These data will be useful tools for those interested in tracking the impact of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on access to treatment and quality of care and outcomes.
Session Objectives: Describe where SAMHSA short reports are available and locate existing reports on behavioral health topics of interest. Demonstrate data analysis using the public use files for NSDUH, TEDS, and DAWN (data sets collected by SAMHSA). Discuss appropriate uses of the restricted use data access mechanism (R-DAS)and advantages of these data and describe/demonstrate the process for generating maps using these data.
