This study compares lifetime prevalence and age of first use (onset) for alcohol, cannabis, and other drugs in six international sites. Data from seven epidemiologic field surveys that used compatible instruments and study designs were compiled for cross-site analyses by the International Consortium of Psychiatric Epidemiology (ICPE). The world health organization's composite international diagnostic instrument (WHO-CIDI) and additional items were used to ascertain drug use in each site… Expand

Prevalence and correlates of dual diagnoses in U.S. Latinos.
TLDR
The population prevalence, patterns of onset, and important demographic covariates for dual (co-occurring) diagnoses of substance and non-substance mental disorders, using data from the National Latino and Asian Services Survey (NLAAS) using the World Health Organization CIDI, DSM-IV criteria, for case ascertainment are examined.

The prevalence and correlates of alcohol use disorders in the United States and Korea--a cross-national comparative study.
TLDR
The prevalence rates of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition 12-month diagnoses of alcohol use disorders between the United States and South Korea using two large nationally representative surveys were compared. Expand
Correlates of later-onset cannabis use in the National Epidemiological Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions (NESARC).
TLDR
Religious and pro-social activities are negatively associated with late-onset cannabis onset while divorce and alcohol and nicotine-related problems are positively associated with later onset. Expand
Size and burden of mental disorders in Europe—a critical review and appraisal of 27 studies
TLDR
Epidemiological data on a wide range of mental disorders from community studies conducted in European countries are presented to determine the availability and consistency of prevalence, disability and treatment findings for the EU, highlighting considerable future research needs for coordinated EU studies across all disorders and age groups. Expand
The Age of Onset of Alcohol Use Disorders
TLDR
This chapter summarizes what the authors know about cultural, environmental and genetic factors associated with age of alcohol onset patterns and what remains to be understood and assesses patterns of early and late alcohol use as possible clinical markers for more effective treatment and prevention approaches. Expand
Early Onset Cannabis Use and Progression to other Drug Use in a Sample of Dutch Twins
TLDR
The elevated odds of subsequent illicit drug use in early cannabis users relative to their non early using co-twins suggests that this association could not be explained by common familial risk factors, either genetic or environmental, for which the co-Twin methodology provided rigorous control. Expand
Substance use, dependence and treatment seeking in the United States and Australia: a cross-national comparison.
TLDR
Although relatively similar cultural influences in Australia and the U.S, interesting cross-national differences emerged in the use of alcohol and drug dependence among those who used drugs and treatment seeking among people diagnosed with dependence indicates that similar process of vulnerability to dependence may be operating in the two countries. Expand
Further evidence of differences in substance use and dependence between Australia and the United States.
TLDR
Cross-national generalizability of the relationships between the common correlates and prevalence of substance use and dependence indicates that a similar process of vulnerability to dependence may be operating in the USA and Australia. Expand
Male-female differences in the risk of progression from first use to dependence upon cannabis, cocaine, and alcohol.
TLDR
There are male-female differences in the risk of becoming cannabis dependent during the first several years after initiation of cannabis use, less pronounced male- Female differences for alcohol, and relatively smaller male- female differences for cocaine. Expand
Cannabis or alcohol first? Differences by ethnicity and in risk for rapid progression to cannabis-related problems in women
TLDR
It is indicated that AA women are at greater risk for rapid development of cannabis-related problems than EA women and that this risk is even higher when cannabis use is initiated before alcohol use. Expand

The case-crossover design may help to overcome some limitations of these studies and facilitate evaluation of associations and possible causal mechanisms by which acute alcohol use is linked to suicidal behavior. Expand

Men were significantly more likely to use drugs than women, and drug use and dependence were much more common among cohorts born after World War II, and the data indicated that rates of dependence among women were quickly approaching the rates among men in the younger cohorts. Expand

Substance Use, Abuse and Dependence in Germany
TLDR
Findings of available epidemiological studies in Germany from the 1980s and 1990s are summarized and critically evaluated and priorities for future research to ameliorate this unsatisfactory situation are outlined with emphasis on research in adolescents and young adults. Expand
Comparing age at onset of major depression and other psychiatric disorders by birth cohorts in five US community populations.
TLDR
The findings are consistent with a gradual shift to increased rates for major depression between the ages of 15 and 19 years for Epidemiologic Catchment Area respondents born more recently and suggest a similar shift for drug abuse/dependence. Expand
The Netherlands Mental Health Survey and Incidence Study (NEMESIS): objectives and design
TLDR
The objectives and design of a prospective study of the prevalence, incidence and course of psychiatric disorders in a representative sample of non-institutionalized Dutch adults, which determines the lifetime occurrence of DSM-III-R disorders are described. Expand
Lifetime prevalence of DSM-III-R psychiatric disorders among urban and rural Mexican Americans in California.
TLDR
Mexican Americans had lower rates of lifetime psychiatric disorders compared with rates reported for the US population by the National Comorbidity Survey, and psychiatric morbidity among Mexican Americans is primarily influenced by cultural variance rather than socioeconomic status or urban vs rural residence. Expand
Patterns of Use and Their Relationship to DSM-IV Abuse and Dependence of Alcohol among Adolescents and Young Adults
TLDR
There is however only a moderate association between average number of standard drinks consumed with the risk of developing abuse and dependence, and in light of the substantial rates among adolescents and young adults the validity of DSM-IV alcohol disorder criteria is discussed. Expand
[Gender differences in alcohol consumption in Mexico City].
TLDR
The age of onset of alcohol consumption has diminished, especially in women, showing tendencies towards abuse, and preventive programs should predominantly focus on young age groups with emphasis on the feminine population. Expand
