Figure GPS-19. Comparison of drug use prevalence during last year by different user groups in the general population aged 15 to 34 – data for Spain, 1999


Data for Spain 1999; age range 15 to 34.

Cannabis and other drug users are defined as having used the substance during the past year. These examples and the following text are based on analysis of data in the general population survey databank carried out by Dr Harry Sumnall, Liverpool John Moores University, UK. Managed by Julian Vicente, EMCDDA.

Conditional prevalence of substance use across periods is calculated (i.e. the prevalence of use of drug B considering use of drug A has already occurred).

The calculation shows the association between prevalence of drug B in those individuals reporting use of drug A.
