a Reference population includes U.S. population age 18 and over who had a mood, anxiety, or impulse control disorder in the past year. The Composite International Diagnostic Interview (CIDI) was used to make psychiatric diagnoses consistent with the 4th edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV). Minimally adequate treatment is defined as at least 60 days of an appropriate medication and 4 visits to a physician or at least 8 visits to a health care or human services professional lasting an average of 30 or more minutes in the past year.

b Negative/poor refers to household incomes below the Federal poverty line; near poor/low, over the poverty line to just below 200 percent of the poverty line; middle, 200 percent to just below 400 percent of the poverty line; and high, 400 percent of the poverty line and over.
