Notes:

Data are from the most recent national surveys available in each country (see Table GPS-8 part ii).

Some countries use a slightly different age range to the EMCDDA standard age range for young adults. Variations in age ranges may slightly influence disparities between countries.

The most recent general population survey reported by Italy display a wide variation in results compared with the previous surveys which may reflect methodological differences. The data is provided for information, but given the lack of comparability between surveys should be treated with caution.
