National Addiction & HIV Data Archive Program


NOTE: The following five variables were created to generate
multi-year trend estimates for the 2007 Detailed Tables.
These variables contain information on the general types of
mental health services received by youths in the past year
for problems with behavior or emotions that were not caused
by alcohol or drugs.

The following variable, ANYSMH, indicates whether a youth
reported receiving specialty mental health services in the
past year from any of 7 specific inpatient/residential or
outpatient specialty sources for problems with behavior or
emotions that were not caused by alcohol or drugs. This
variable was created based on the following 7 source of
treatment variables: stayed overnight in a hospital
(YHOSP), stayed in a residential treatment facility
(YRESID), spent time in foster care (YFOST), spent time
in a day treatment facility (YDAYTRT), received treatment
from a mental health clinic (YCLIN), from a private
therapist (YTHER), and from an in-home therapist (YHOME).
Youths who reported a positive response (source variable=1)
to one or more of the 7 questions were included in the yes
category regardless of how many of the 7 questions they
answered. Youths who did not report a positive response,
but answered all 7 of the questions were included in the no
category. Youths who did not report a positive response and
did not answer all the questions, and adults were included
in the unknown/18+ category.
