PDU (Problem drug use) revision summary.


Danica Thanki, Julian Vicente

Subject Keywords: Drug misuse
Catalogue: Research and Evaluation
Type: Report
Region: Republic of Ireland
Northern Ireland

This document is a summary of the concepts and definitions in the revised area. Detailed background information about the process of revision can be found in two related documents (see footnote 3). The changes are, for the most part, related to the theoretical component of the indicator. Data collection recommendations will remain mostly unchanged, with two exceptions: the addition of intensive cannabis use data collection based on general population surveys methodology; and making provision for interested countries to report on other — including new — drugs. However, most of the existing work will correspond to a subset of the revised indicator area.
