NVDARS provides the best data on depression in the U.S. Today, depression affects about 15 million Americans and can be difficult to diagnose, treat, or manage.
NVDARDS new data shows that about one-fifth of people with depression have been diagnosed with at least one of the following: chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), a common neurological disorder that affects nearly 40 million Americans; posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a debilitating disorder that can lead to depression and suicide; anxiety disorders, including panic attacks, post-traumatic stress, and generalized anxiety disorder; and depression related to other mental health conditions, such as major depressive disorder (MDD).
The NVDATS Depression in America report was released today, and includes data from more than 2,600 studies that are being used to understand the prevalence and impact of depression in this country.
These studies are the first in a series that will explore the relationship between depression and the onset of NVDars new survey, the National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions (NESARC), a comprehensive health survey of American adults conducted annually since 1999.
In this survey, researchers and clinicians have been able to better understand the complex and evolving relationship between NVDs health burden and the health of American communities.
This survey will also be a critical resource for researchers in the fields of health policy, social science, epidemiology, and behavioral science, and the NVDAS will continue to provide valuable insight into how the American people live, work, and feel about themselves and their health.
The survey provides insights into the prevalence of depression, the number of people who are currently experiencing depression, and their characteristics.
The survey also offers insights into how people with a history of depression respond to treatment and how NVDA can assist people who have had symptoms of depression but are not able to manage their symptoms.
NVAARS is the first survey of its kind in the United States.
The new survey is the largest ever conducted by NVAARDS, and it represents the first time that the prevalence, characteristics, and risk factors of depression have all been gathered.
The NVAAS is part of NVAARES, the largest national health survey in the world.
The National Epidemiological Survey on the Epidemiology of Alcohol and Other Drugs (NESARCH) and NVDARC are the only national surveys that conduct a continuous, large-scale, multistage, multiethnic, and multiethmic survey.
The NESARCH is conducted every two years, and NVAASCAN is conducted annually.
