Figure GPS-1. Last 12 months prevalence of cannabis use among all adults (aged 15 to 64), young adults (aged 15 to 34) and for youth (aged 15 to 24)

Notes:

Data are from the most recent national surveys available in each country (see General population survey tables, EMCDDA Statistical bulletin 2011).

The age range is from between 15 and 18 to between 59 and 64. Variations in age ranges may slightly influence disparities between countries.

The most recent General population surveys reported by the Czech Republic display a wide variation in results, the reason for which is being explored, but may be due to differing sampling methods.  The data is provided for information, but given the lack of comparability between surveys should be treated with caution.
