Comparable to National Dataset?
TEDS is national data. State-level data is not necessarily directly comparable to other states in dataset.
Strategic Data Need
Assess need for substance abuse treatment.
TEDS accepts data revisions for admissions occurring in the previous 5 years to improve data quality (but admissions numbers reported may differ slightly from those in earlier/subsequent data)
Does not represent total national demand for substance abuse treatment; differences in state systems of licensure, certification, accreditation, and disbursement of public funds affect scope of facilities included in dataset; may not include private for-profit agencies, hospitals, and state correctional system if not licensed through the state; does not include federal agency-operated facilities. Treatment admissions (TEDS-A) represent admissions rather than individuals, as a person may be admitted more than once.
