Statistical bulletin 2018 — wastewater epidemiology

Analysing communal wastewaters for drugs and their metabolic products in order to estimate their consumption in the community is a developing field, involving scientists working in different research areas, including analytical chemistry, physiology and biochemistry, sewage engineering, spatial epidemiology and statistics, and conventional drug epidemiology. Methods and definitions for the data on this page can be found on the Wastewater epidemiology methods and definitions page.
