The fifth in a series of National Addiction Surveys in Mexico, this survey interviewed adolescents and adults about their alcohol, tobacco, and medicinal and illicit drug consumption. Household members in 50,688 homes throughout Mexico were interviewed; adults between the ages of 18 and 65, as well as teens ages 12 to 17, were selected to be interviewed. Demographic and household characteristics collected include age, sex, family composition, marital status, education, housing conditions, and employment type.

Previous nationally representative surveys in this series were completed in 1988, 1994, 1998, and 2002. A subnational survey was completed in 1974.
