Introduction



The map gives access to diagrams that provide a visual quick reference to the drug use prevalence position of each country, based on the most recently available data.

For each country, a prevalence profile across a selection of drugs is shown alongside a diagram presenting the country's relative rating amongst all countries reporting data. The explanatory notes explain the structure of the diagram.

Some notes on the limitations of the data and their comparisons are provided but the reader should note that this presentation is intended only for quick reference purposes. For fuller information, the cited tables and there accompanying methodological notes in the 2005 statistical bulletin should be consulted.
