What I am looking for is a dataset that has a number of independent variables, such as age, sex, smoker/non-smoker etc. for which I intend to carry out supervised learning for the dependent variable which would be a mental health diagnosis such as major depression, schizophrenia or a personality disorder.

I am aware of the SAMHDA data on drug abuse but that is not quite what I am looking for.

(I do not have institutional access to any such thing.)

  • That was in there from the beginning: "I am aware of the SAMHDA data on drug abuse but that is not quite what I am looking for." – readyready15728 Sep 20 '16 at 23:48
  • Also: "I intend to carry out supervised learning for the dependent variable which would be a mental health diagnosis such as major depression, schizophrenia or a personality disorder." All of these may be comorbid with some sort of drug abuse but are not issues of drug abuse per se. – readyready15728 Sep 20 '16 at 23:49
  • nsduh has these variables. please edit your question to explain why they're not suitable for you, thanks – Anthony Damico Sep 21 '16 at 3:03
