Description

Respondents reported whether their level of depression, the last time they felt depressed, was "a little," "a lot," or "somewhere in between a little and a lot." This question was only asked of respondents who reported feeling depressed at least monthly (DEPFREQ) or who acknowledged taking medication for depression (DEPRX).

In 2010, this item was collected for sample adults who completed the Quality of Life supplement (administered to approximately a quarter of sample adults). Beginning in 2011, this item was collected for sample adults who completed the Adult Functioning and Disability supplement (administered to a subset of sample adults).
