Source: The NSDUH Report of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Substance Abuse and Mental Health Statistics Group. Get the bigger picture from Robert J. Ambroji at Inside Opinions, where he notes that

symptoms, which may account for its divergent findings [from previous studies] concerning lawyers. It reports that 6.4 percent of lawyers had such an episode in the past year, with the incidents higher among female lawyers than male (8.2 percent for women and 4.6 percent for men).
Now let's shoot for number 21, just behind our science and engineering clients in the patent arena.
