European Web Survey on Drugs: patterns of use
A new round of the European Web Survey on Drugs was launched by the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction on 18 March 2021.
General Population Surveys (GPS) can provide valuable information on drug use prevalence in Europe, but insufficient sample sizes can prevent them from yielding robust information on patterns of use. This is where web-based surveys can help. They are a useful tool for collecting information on patterns of drug use from a larger sample of people who use illicit drugs and can complement, and overcome some of their limitations of, other data sources.
The survey runs in the EU and neighbouring countries and EU candidates. Each country provides the survey in multiple languages.
