PDU (Problem drug use) revision summary


This document is a summary of the concepts and definitions in the revised area. The changes are, for the most part, related to the theoretical component of the indicator. Data collection recommendations will remain mostly unchanged, with two exceptions: the addition of intensive cannabis use data collection based on general population surveys methodology; and making provision for interested countries to report on other — including new — drugs.
