Figure GPS-23 Recent use (last year) of amphetamines, ecstasy and cocaine among young adults – Part (i) Last year use among the 15 to 34 year age group


Sample sizes (n) refer to the number of respondents for the 15 to 34 year age group. For number of respondents for the whole surveys see epidemiological tables on population surveys in the 2006 statistical bulletin.

Data are from the most recent national surveys available in each country (see Epidemiological Tables on Population Surveys, EMCDDA statistical bulletin).

For young adults, the EMCDDA standard age range is 15 to 34 years (Denmark and UK from 16, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary and Germany from 18 years). Variations in age ranges may slightly influence some national differences. In some countries the figures were recalculated at national level, to adapt as far as possible to standard EMCDDA age groups.
