National Household Survey on Drug Abuse: Population Estimates 1991.
Research Triangle Inst., Research Triangle Park, NC.
This report presents population estimates of drug use prevalence for the civilian non-institutionalized population of the United States. Information is provided on the methodology of the 1991 National Household Survey. Population estimates are presented separately for the total population and for Whites, Hispanics, and Blacks. These data are also presented separately for each of the four Census Bureau regions: Northeast, North Central, South, and West. For each drug there are eight tables which are arranged to facilitate group comparisons. The data for the total population are presented by sex for each of the four age groups (12-17, 18-25, 26-34, and 35+). Data in the remaining seven tables for each racial or regional category are presented first by age, then by sex, and finally for the total population in that racial or regional category. The population estimate tables are organized into two sections: prevalence estimates for specific drugs and drug classes and frequency of drug use among past year users. Specific drugs and drug classes examined include: (1) any illicit drug use; (2) marijuana; (3) cocaine; (4) crack; (5) inhalants; (6) hallucinogens; (7) any psychotherapeutics used non-medically; (8) stimulants; (9) sedatives; (10) tranquilizers; (11) analgesics; (12) alcohol; (13) cigarettes; (14) smokeless tobacco; (15) PCP; (16) heroin; (17) anabolic steroids; and (18) needle use.
