2002 National Survey on Drug Use and Health—(OMB Number 0930-0110, Revision)—The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) [formerly the National Household Survey on Drug Abuse (NHSDA)] is a survey of the civilian, Start Printed Page 34710noninstitutionalized population of the United States 12 years old and older. The data are used to determine the prevalence of use of tobacco products, alcohol, illicit substances, and illicit use of prescription drugs. The results are used by SAMHSA, ONDCP, Federal government agencies, and other organizations and researchers to establish policy, direct program activities, and better allocate resources.

For the 2002 NSDUH, the modular components of the questionnaire will remain essentially unchanged except for minor modifications to wording. As with all NSDUH surveys conducted since 1999, the sample size of the survey for 2002 will be sufficient to permit prevalence estimates for each of the fifty states and the District of Columbia. The total annual burden estimate is 85,400 hours as shown below:
