The National Survey of American Life (NSAL)is a study designed to explore racial and ethnic differences in mental disorders, psychological distress, and informal and formal service use from within the context of a variety of presumed risk and protective factors in the African-American and Afro-Caribbean populations of the United States as compared with White respondents living in the same communities. The NSAL is part of the Collaborative Psychiatric Epidemiology Surveys (CPES) data collection (see ICPSR20240). Data and documentation for NSAL can be accessed through the CPES Web site.
