Date of Collection:
Unit of Observation:
Youth in the United States.
Data Collection Notes:
Two different schedules were used with two separate
subsamples. These schedules are similar except for the sections on drug
use, and data from both these schedules have been integrated into a
single coding frame. Question numbers with an asterisk (*) were used
only in the National Institute of Mental Health interviews, and
question numbers with a numeric sign (#) were used only in the Office
of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention interview schedule.
Produced by the University of Colorado, Behavioral Research Institute at Boulder, CO.
National sample of the American youth population selected
by area probability sampling.
Extent of Processing: ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of
disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major
statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to
these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:
Performed consistency checks.
Standardized missing values.
Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
Restrictions: Users are reminded by the United States Department of Health and Human Services that these data are to be used solely for statistical analysis and reporting of aggregated information and not for the investigation of specific individuals or treatment facilities.
