Data utilized for this study originated from the Gulf States Population Survey (GSPS). The GSPS was a random-digit dialing survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in partnership with state and local health departments and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration from December 2010 to December 2011. The GSPS involved surveying 38,361 adults who resided in counties and parishes impacted by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, and Mississippi. It was implemented to assess the physical, behavioral, and mental health of the population in the Gulf region in order to evaluate the need for behavioral and mental health services and coordinate the provision of such services in areas affected by the oil spill.
