a Received any illicit drug or alcohol treatment refers to treatment received in order to reduce or stop drug or alcohol use, or for medical problems associated with drug or alcohol use. It includes treatment received at any location, such as a hospital, rehabilitation facility (inpatient or outpatient), mental health center, emergency room, private doctor's office, self-help group, or prison/jail. Any illicit drug includes marijuana/hashish, cocaine (including crack), heroin, hallucinogens, inhalants, or any prescription-type psychotherapeutic drug used nonmedically, based on data from original questions not including methamphetamine items added in 2005 and 2006.

b Negative/poor refers to household incomes below the Federal poverty line; near poor/low refers to incomes between the poverty line and 200 percent of the poverty line; middle refers to household incomes between 200 and 300 percent of the poverty line; and high incomes are those that are at 300 percent of the poverty line and over. Missing values for family income were imputed using multiple imputation methodology. A small number of people were excluded because their family income could not be imputed.
