2007 DAWN data revised to correct error in August 12, 2013 release

The 2007 Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN) emergency department (ED) public-use data file has been revised to correct an error that was found in the August 12, 2013 version of the file. The error has been eliminated and the corrected 2007 DAWN data file is now available for download and online analysis.

The error occurred when the drug identification variable was updated. Anyone who used the affected 2007 DAWN version to create crosstabs with the drug identification variable received invalid point estimates.

Only the 2007 version of DAWN had the error; other years (2004 through 2006 and 2008 through 2011) were not affected. Users who downloaded or performed an online analysis using the 2007 DAWN study between August 12th and August 24th should download the corrected data or re-run their analysis.
