If you are referring to psychology, DID means: Dissociative Identity Disorder; previously known as MPD--Multiple Personality Disorder.

Dissociative Identity Disorder was thought to better state the disorder, and was so re-named in the DSM-IV, published in 2000. MPD was the diagnosis prior to the publication of DSM IV--Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 4th edition, published 1994. There was a Text Revision in 2000, creating DSM-IV-TR

At this time (Aug 2012), the DSM-V is in the process of consultation and preparation, and has an expected publication date of May 2013.
