The 1998 SMHO was conducted by the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

full time equivalent staff, bed count, and total caseload by type of organization.
The population omits one extreme observation in the
smho98 population and
has fewer variables than
smho.N874 contains observations on 874 facilities.
