The enhanced Substance Abuse and Mental Health Data Archive (SAMHDA) is back online with new features and a new URL: http://datafiles.samhsa.gov/. We encourage users to explore all of the files available for public use, which include new and updated series data.
In late summer 2016, the SAMHDA website will add a user-friendly, online analysis tool. Users will be able to create cross-tabs and perform logistic regression, chi-square tests, and t-tests from their web browsers. They will also be able to download output and underlying data in .csv format.
In early winter 2016, approved researchers will be able to access restricted-use data through a secure data portal. A new call for the data portal will follow once all approved researchers from the first three calls have access.
If you have questions or require technical assistance, contact the SAMHDA Help Desk through the online technical assistance form or by calling 1-888-741-7242.
