|Title:||National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions (NESARC)|
|Source:||National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism|
|Abstract:||NESARC was designed to be a longitudinal survey with its first Wave of interviews fielded in 2001-2002. The second Wave of interviews is planned for 2004-2005. The NESARC is a representative sample of the United States population and 43,093 Americans participated in the first Wave of the survey. During Wave 2, an attempt to re-interview all 43,093 of these respondents will be made. The target population of the NESARC is the non-institutionalized household population, 18 years and older, residing in the United States including the District of Columbia, Alaska, and Hawaii. Additionally the following non-institutional group quarters housing units were included as part of the NESARC sample: boarding houses, rooming houses, non-transient hotels and motels, shelters, facilities for housing workers, college quarters, and group homes. The sample provides estimates for the nation as a whole on topics related to alcohol and drug use, abuse and dependence and their associated disabilities.|
