a Major depressive episode (MDE) is defined as a period of at least 2 weeks when a person experienced a depressed mood or loss of interest or pleasure in daily activities and had a majority of the symptoms of depression as described in the 4th edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV). Treatment is defined as seeing or talking to a medical doctor or other professional or using prescription medication for depression in the past year. Respondents with unknown treatment data were excluded. Due to MDE questionnaire changes, the 2008 estimates are no longer comparable to estimates in previous years.

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.

c Metropolitan refers to all metropolitan areas; Large central and fringe metro, central and suburban counties in metro area of 1 million or more population; Medium metro, counties in metro area of 250,000 to less than 1,000,000; Small metro, counties in metro area of less than 250,000 population; Nonmetropolitan, all nonmetropolitan areas.

DSU - Data do not meet the criteria for statistical reliability, data quality, or confidentiality.
