Figure PDU-2. Estimates of the prevalence of injecting drug use (rate per 1000 population aged 15 to 64), 2004 to 2009 — last study available

Notes:

Methods of estimation are abbreviated: CR=Capture-recapture; TM =Treatment multiplier; PM = Police multiplier; MI = Multivariate indicator; TP= Truncated Poisson; CM = Combined methods;  MM= Mortality multiplier; OT= Other methods.

The symbol indicates a point estimate, a bar indicates an uncertainty interval, which can be either a 95 % confidence interval or an interval based on sensitivity analysis (see Table PDU-102 part (ii)).

Target groups may vary slightly owing to different methods and data sources; therefore comparisons should be made with caution.

In the case of Portugal the interval represents the highest and lowest bounds of all existing estimates, and the point estimate a simple average of all data points.

In case of Germany the central estimate was not available; a midpoint was calculated as a simple average of the Low and High estimate.

1 - Estonia: Original age range of study was 15–44, rates have been adjusted to 15–64. Higher bound of estimation = 37.91 per 1 000 population. Croatia = The original age range is all ages.
