The NLAAS data set provides computed prevalence rates for major DSM-IV-TR diagnoses.
Cultural relevance and equivalence in the NLAAS instrument: Integrating etic and emic in the development of cross-cultural measures for a psychiatric epidemiology and services study of Latinos.
Second, NCS-R and NLAAS data are over 10 years old, and there may have been important changes in treatment utilization in the last decade.

In the present study, we use Part II only of the NCS-R pooled with the NLAAS Latinos, since we require detailed information on health status, demographics, and correlates of disorder.

The NLAAS shares with the CPES common core sections, including the World Mental Health Survey Initiative version of the World Health Organization Composite International Diagnostic Interview (WMH-CIDI, Kessler and Ustun 2004), the Thirty-Day Functioning, the Service Use Battery, and sociodemographic variables.
Allocating part of a limited sample to the Modified Instrument to assess survey conditioning might reduce the comparability between the NLAAS and the other CPES surveys (NCS-R and NSAL).
