Race and ethnicityMoreSince the inception of the National Household Survey on Drug Abuse (NHSDA),renamed the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) as of 2002, questions have beenincluded to determine the race and ethnicity of each respondent. Race and ethnicity are routinelyused as part of the demographic breakdowns in the analyses and the various reports generatedfrom the survey. From 1971 to 1998, the race and ethnicity questions underwent few changes.(See Appendix A for the full list of race and ethnicity questions used for each NHSDA surveyyear from 1971 to 2001.) However, along with the switch from paper-and-pencil interviewing(PAPI) methods of questionnaire administration to computer-assisted interviewing (CAI)methods in 1999, the race and ethnicity categories were updated pursuant to new Office ofManagement and Budget (OMB) directives. This report details the revisions to the race andethnicity questions. It includes the history of the change, how this change affected the editingand imputation procedures, and how it changed the derivation of the race and ethnicity variablesused in NHSDA analyses.
