Merged CPES Data and Web Site Now Available

ICPSR and Survey Research Operations of the Institute for Social Research, University of Michigan, are pleased to announce the release of the Collaborative Psychiatric Epidemiology Surveys (CPES), which provide data on the distributions, correlates, and risk factors of mental disorders among the general population, with special emphasis on minority groups. Funded by the National Institute of Mental Heath, this project joins together three nationally representative surveys: the National Comorbidity Survey Replication (NCS-R), the National Survey of American Life (NSAL), and the National Latino and Asian American Study (NLAAS).
The CPES Web site provides a number of ways to explore the CPES data:
  • Use the Interactive Documentation to compare questions and variables across the merged CPES file and the three separate files
  • Download the data in ASCII, SPSS portable, SAS transport, or Stata system format along with the documentation for desktop analysis
  • Investigate and visualize the CPES data through the SDA online analysis system, which enables a variety of analytic tasks
  • Search on specific variables or topics of interest
  • Browse the CPES data by DSM-IV or ICD-10 diagnostic headings
