Summary
This study examines the prevalence of illicit drug, alcohol, and tobacco use among members of household and nonhousehold populations and a combined aggregate population aged 12 and older in the District of Columbia Metropolitan Statistical Area (DC MSA). In addition, selected characteristics of three drug-abusing subgroups in the household and aggregate populations are examined: crack cocaine users, heroin users, and needle users. The study had three methodological objectives: (1) to investigate the effect that combining data from household and nonhousehold populations has on estimates of the prevalence of drug use and number of users, (2) to determine whether the addition of nonhousehold populations allows more detailed demographic analyses to be conducted for specific drug-using behaviors, and (3) to identify important methodological issues when combining and analyzing data from household and nonhousehold populations. Household population data were collected as part of the DC MSA oversample of the NATIONAL HOUSEHOLD SURVEY ON DRUG ABUSE, 1991 (ICPSR 6128). Nonhousehold population data were subsetted from the 1991 DC*MADS Institutionalized Population Study and WASHINGTON, DC, METROPOLITAN AREA DRUG STUDY (DC*MADS), 1991: HOMELESS AND TRANSIENT POPULATION (ICPSR 2346). Household survey topics included age at first use as well as lifetime, annual, and past-month usage for the following drug classes: marijuana and hash, cocaine (and crack), hallucinogens, heroin, inhalants, alcohol, tobacco, anabolic steroids, nonmedical use of prescription drugs including psychotherapeutics, and polysubstance use. Respondents were also asked about substance abuse treatment history, problems resulting from use of drugs, perceptions of the risks involved, personal and family income sources and amounts, need for treatment for drug or alcohol use, mental health and access to care, illegal...
