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. Specification of metropolitan and nonmetropolitan subgroups changed in 2009; results should not be compared with those of previous years. For information on the urban-rural classification scheme, refer to http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data_access/urban_rural.htm#documentation.
