Abstract

Compared to DSM-IV nicotine dependence, proposed DSM-5 nicotine use disorder (NUD) would lower the threshold from three to two symptoms, and increase the number of criteria used for diagnosis from seven to 11. The impact of the proposed changes on nicotine disorder prevalence and the concurrent validity of diagnostic criteria were examined.
