We used data from the Gulf States Population Survey (GSPS), 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 across Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, and Mississippi. The GSPS surveyed 38,361 adults residing in counties and parishes affected by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill to assess physical, behavioral, and mental health in the Gulf region.
