The National Latino and Asian American Study (NLAAS) is a nationally representative community household survey that estimates the prevalence of mental disorders and rates of mental health service utilization by Latinos and Asian Americans in the United States. The central aims of the NLAAS were threefold. First, to describe the lifetime and 12-month prevalence of psychiatric disorders and the rates of mental health services use for Latino and Asian American populations using nationwide representative samples of these groups. Second, to assess the associations among social position, environmental context, and psychosocial factors with the prevalence of psychiatric disorders and utilization rates of mental health services. Third, to compare the lifetime and 12-month prevalence of psychiatric disorders, and utilization of mental health services of Latinos and Asian Americans with national representative samples of non-Latino whites and African Americans. The NLAAS is part of the Collaborative Psychiatric Epidemiology Surveys (CPES) data collection (see ICPSR20240). Data and documentation for NLAAS can be accessed through the CPES Web site.
