Expenditures are for behavioral health services for the primary diagnosis of the diagnostic category being reported. Thus, the depressive disorders row only includes mental health expenditures that are attributed to depression via the primary diagnosis.

NOTES: Data are presented for the sample and are not weighted to the U.S. population. Diagnostic categories were defined using the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality's Clinical Classifications Software. Expenditures are calculated by summing the expenditures for claims with a primary diagnosis falling within the diagnostic category.

Expenditure estimates were adjusted from 2011 to 2012 dollars using the GDP Price Index. The index is compiled by the U.S. Department of Commerce's Bureau of Economic Analysis.

As an example of how to interpret the estimates in the table, in 2011, approximately 1.8 percent of privately insured adult beneficiaries in the sample had a diagnosed adjustment disorder.
