Examines the extent and trends in illicit drug use among a nationally representative sample of 16 to 59 year olds resident in households in England and Wales.
This release is based on results from the 2011 to 2012 Crime survey for England and Wales (CSEW, formerly the British Crime Survey) and includes comparisons with 2010 to 2011 and trends since 1996.
In September 2012, an additional section was added to this publication covering simultaneous polydrug and polysubstance use. This analysis is based on combined data from the 2010 to 2011 and 2011 to 2012 CSEW. Previously published content remains unchanged.
