The Canadian Alcohol and Drug Usage Monitoring Survey (CADUMS) has an metadata entry in NESSTAR but not data to download. I can not find the survey on the EFTP site either.

I have a users looking for the 2011 CADUMS pump and possibly other years as well. So is it possible to get this PUMP (and a SAS file for it)?

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I see that previously only the metadata was published. We will work on updating these files so that users can also download the data.

We have already republished 2011. We will add 2012 CADUMS to our priority list.

Upon further investigation, I see that the survey was conducted by Health Canada, which is why it would not be located on the DLI EFT site.

The original files are found on the mirror site hosted at the University of Alberta here:
